"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

After reading Children to a Degree I purchased the following three books and finished reading all four books within three days. They were that engaging and captivating. When Postwar Drifter came on sale I bought it and read it on one day! I heartily recommend all five books, and am waiting for book six with great anticipation! They are that good.
As a native German speaking author, Horst Christian tells his autobiographical story, engaging the reader in the turmoil of Germany as seen through his and his friend Harold's eyes as a members of the Hitler youth. While some of their experiences are chilling and more than a bit scary, others are endearing and heartwarming. Horst doesn't write about things he didn't experience, so don't expect comments about the camps. That is not his story.
These stories give readers a insight into many of the cultural factors that existed in the German mindset at that time in history. Many people tend to assume that all cultural mindsets are similar, but nothing could be farther from the truth.
These books provide a rare glimpse into Berlin and Germany in the 1940s and later, with a personal point of view that would be difficult to find elsewhere if at all. I highly recommend the entire series and suggest you read them in order. It is my great hope that these will be made into films, although I believe very few directors could do them justice. (I'm thinking Jean-Jacques Annaud is one that could (Enemy at the Gates), or maybe Ron Howard.)
I am grateful the author took the time to tell his and Harold's stories. Start with Children To A Degree... you will want to read the rest, including Postwar Drifter!
