"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.

Might be a little slow in the beginning for some readers but I didn't mind. Solid World building and characters that I could relate to.
Give this book a chance if you love military sci fi.
I usually don't leave to many reviews because I feel I never do any book proper justice with my own flailing attempts at "reviewing" but ever so often I feel compelled to at least throw my 2 cents in.
Even if its mainly cave woman level of: Me like book, you buy now, be happy.
*my reviews aren't very insightful most times. Just regular feedback of a contented reader.
This new series, placed in amazing universe; a displaced humanity has just concluded a centuries long war with an aggressive species. On the eve of celebration on humanity's homeworld, the CO of a celebrated warship, the Phoenix, is detained, murdered, which blame is placed on the second In command, LCDR Erik Debogande.
Erik is subsequently detained, but liberated by the Phoenix's Marine commander, Major Trace Thakur.
Escaping in the Phoenix, Trace and Erik begin to unravel a galaxy wide conspiracy that threatens to expose the fragile democracy of humanity's government, as well as relationship between allies and past enemies.
I will remind, that Shepherd writes great combat and action scenes. With this trilogy, he can add realistic space combat as well. His universe's physics are believable, but compelling.
A solid beginning to a trilogy that promises action, both ground and space, an intrigue, and a galaxy spanning adventure.
A solid five stars. I look forward to the remainder of the trilogy.
Bring on the next installment!
This is not a very "mathematical" or "sciency" book, so pretty accessible to non-sci-fi fans, but for sci-fi fans like myself, this is still with a wonderfully build-up universe.
The basic premise, that earth was destroyed and earthlings hit back is pretty well run through, but the author puts his own spin on this and adds mystery and history :)
I strongly recommend this book
The characters are the noble sort, but are deep enough to enjoy and the interactions between the spacers and marines, and within the marines themselves, is well written. The dialogue is humorous enough when needed to keep things moving along at a good clip.
Finished the book in one sitting, though I read at about 100 pages per hour for light stuff.
