"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.

Review

NATIONAL BESTSELLER 

“If you are a life hacker, this book is a keeper.” —Forbes 


“Chris Bailey has tackled the daunting task of personally experimenting with any and every technique you can imagine that could positively affect your productivity. His dedication to the project and his intelligent conclusions, combined with his candor and articulateness, make this a fun, interesting, and useful read!” —David Allen, author of Getting Things Done

“Chris Bailey might be the most productive man you’d ever hope to meet.” —TED Blog

“Here’s a book that promises, in the title, to pay for itself. And, the truth is, it will, in just a few days. And you’ll even enjoy the journey.” Seth Godin, author of Linchpin

“Chris has written the ultimate guidebook for setting your life on fire. Read it, and you’ll not only get more done, you’ll feel better about it too.” Laura Vanderkam, author of I Know How She Does It

“So often we get stuck just doing what we have always done, even if it’s not really working. This book helps you cut through all the productivity advice out there to find and test what really works for you.” Shawn Achor, positive psychology researcher and New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage
 
The Productivity Project is well-written, fun, practical and useful all at the same time. I loved this book. It’s practical Buddhism at its best!” Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author of TriggersMOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

“Chris doesn’t just want you to be more productive. He wants you to live a better life. This book is a two-hour ticket to not only becoming more productive, but becoming genuinely happier.” —Neil Pasricha, author of The Book of Awesome and The Happiness Equation

“[B]ecause of [Bailey’s] personal experiences, the book has a special appeal. . . . Although it’s about his personal odyssey, it’s really about you—and how you can accomplish more and be happier each day. . . . The year has started with a productivity bang, at least in books . . . All are excellent, but I would rate [The Productivity Project] the best if you had to read just one.” —The Globe and Mail
 
“My initial reaction was ‘A self-help book? Not for me.’ But it turns out, this book is for me—and you. . . . This funny read . . . will really get you thinking about how to make the most of your time and energy.” —Ottawa Magazine
 
“[E]very entrepreneur and professional I’ve met in business wants and needs to be more productive, but finding the approach that works for them can be elusive. I think you will find the techniques presented here well worth adding to your work ethic.” —Martin Zwilling, Forbes

“Straightforward and packed with practical tips, it’ll have you reevaluating how you spend your precious minutes.” —Vitamin Daily 

“Bailey’s commitment to long form writing, analysis and experimenting with different approaches attracted my attention. His willingness to track results, numbers and share his findings reminds me of Tim Ferriss’s earlier work on productivity. The world needs more experimentation and validation for productivity ideas, so I hope Bailey continues his work. . . . Bailey does us a service when he reminds us that ‘common sense is not common practice.’” —Project Management Hacks (blog) 

“Chris [Bailey] writes in an engaging way that really captured my attention. . . . He gives a lot of good insights that I think many students, young adults, and any career-minded person should read. Highly recommend!” —Petite Christine (blog)
