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

...If by some fluke you read this review, you have truly helped change the trajectory of my path, along with my obsession with the Bhagavad Gita, and Upanishads...and, may i recommend to you the Ashtavakra Gita? (If you have not read).
I hated the idea of going back to a God I left when I couldn’t function.
I hated the idea of going to church and having to use church speech.
And I hated the idea of giving up what I knew was killing me.
Then a book that speaks the same language I do. Uses the same words I do. And outthinks me at ever step came into my view. This is the book that’s helping me go through recovery and to un f*** myself. I knew I needed it I just had no idea how much I wanted it.
How much the pain of my past and what I was running from was killing my future by not letting me live in the present. All the reasons I never wanted to look back and just keep stuffing anything and everything into the void to get those moments of joy that turned to sorrow. How broken I wouldn’t let myself feel. And how much I thought fixing it would hurt.
I’m still going through the book. I’m sure I will many more times. This isn’t a feel good in an hour then put it away kind of book. This is the manual for self realization. And that’s not something you put away until you have it down by heart.
If you’re looking at this book thinking that it will cure you it won’t. But it will help you save you. And that’s all I needed. Now all I want is to live here and now and for the first time in over sixteen long years I’m starting to see the present not as something to escape from. But something to run to.
If you wake up daily and try to forget the here and now this book is for you.
If the moment the slightest problem in your life makes you run to a fix. It’s for you.
If you made it this far. The book is for you.
And thankfully the book was for me too.
