"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"It's sort of like what might happen if one of Heinlein's juvenile heroes (say Kip from Have Spacesuit Will Travel) was thrust into the modern era and was forced to use "SJWs Always Lie" as his freshman orientation guide while battling the Black Hats." -Orion's Cold Fire
"This is really such an original series of books that it's hard to describe it properly. Like Da Vinci Code meets Harry Potter meets Cryptonomicon by way of Michael Crichton. The author really knows his science and tech AND can spin a fantastic tale." -Bookhorde

Schanze captures the current SJW craze on campuses and the razors edge that Engineering and hard science students must walk to survive 4-years in University. Engineering 4 Engineers!
There are a number of, dare I say it, MacGuffins, in this story. I laughed when early in book there was a Smith chart that Peter didn’t recognize. Guess in that alternative universe, Smith chart is not on the Extra class license exam. But knew right away that they would resonate throughout the story.
About only false note in the story was some new players who show up near the end of story. Who they are is foreshadowed in the story, but how know about Peter is not explained and they really have little impact on outcome. Guess that is setup for a future story.
The one thing I missed from the story was after Peter suffers though Diffy-Q math class, he didn’t take the Electrical Engineering class on Analysis and learn about impulse and step functions, which mathematicians will not teach, but make life of an EE easier.
This is a political book, I have been upset to open a book which I expected to be apolitical which wasn't, so consider this warning, though the fact shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who has read the reviews or the copy about this or the previous book.
I appreciate that the protagonist is skilled, but not precisely in the skillset needed for his adventures. Occasionally, when his requirements are more within my skillset than his, I would have liked to be able to offer advice...
I also appreciate that some of the questions left at the end of the first book were answered, too many unanswered questions would give me the idea that there was no plan. I have seen conspiracy stories where they clearly never figured out where they were going and were unable to finish as they couldn't reconcile the threads, I don't fear that here.
Note that it still isn't entirely clear what genre the series will be in, the nature of the foe is still nebulous.
Earlier this week Jordan Peterson was interviewed on Brit TV Channel 4 by Cathy Newman. In 30 minutes Ms. Newman permitted Professor Peterson to destroy all the major talking points of the SJW narrative of the female wage gap war. The video went viral. The Right was ecstatic and the Left was aghast.
Subsequently, beginning with a report by Channel 4 and spread by the Guardian newspaper/site, it was claimed that Ms Newman had received vulgar insults and death threats. And the Guardian, in its patented smarmy way, said that there was no suggestion that Prof. Peterson was responsible. And other media continued the non-denial denial of suggestion.
No mention was made that the SJW/Progs were furious that Ms Newman had 1) let them down and 2) had provided the hated "alt-right favorite" a platform to begin with.
Mr. Schantz's novel provides us with the rationale for the SJW motive for the hate filled missives she allegedly received.
The Guardian was criticized for not showing any evidence at all in their first publication. Subsequently, a the few redacted tweets have been provided to the news media presumably by Channel 4. At this point in time, and contrary to the norm, no names have been are attached to the tweets. Are they trying to protect the identity of the right-wing creeps they have been attempting to link to the verbal assaults? Curious that.
For this bit of insight into the MO of the SJW, I recommend reading this novel.
I cannot wait for the next installment to follow Peter and Amit through their rebellion.
