"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.

Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This is Knott’s second entry in the late Parker’s western series, following Ironhorse, published earlier this year (Knott also wrote the screenplay for Appaloosa, the Ed Harris vehicle drawn from an earlier Parker western). Here lawmen Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch return for another adventure, mouthing their clipped dialogue that wobbles between droll asides and self-parody. They capture and bring in the dangerous Alejandro Vasquez, accused of two murders. But simultaneously, there’s a bank robbery, with the bank president making off with the loot, though only because the real criminal holds his wife hostage. The two are brothers, and ultimately they lead Virgil and Everett into Mexico. But first comes Virgil and Everett’s clever detective work and, of course, considerable shooting. The lawmen spring Alejandro, who provides mysterious insights concerning the brothers, and journey to Veracruz, where a showdown looms, though not before Virgil, Everett, and Alejandro gun down some Federales. Knott seems to enjoy himself in Mexico and portrays the country vigorously. His story is almost all dialogue, so it reads lightning fast, and it’s certainly suspenseful. --John Mort

Review

Praise for the Cole-Hitch Series "Robert B. Parker's legion of fans will be thrilled with Ironhorse". Robert Knott, co-writer of the screenplay for Appaloosa -" Bob's remarkable western- has penned the next great saga featuring itinerant lawmen Everett Hitch and Virgil Cole. Knott's new novel reads just like vintage Parker and the storyline crackles with all the excitement and humor of what is a perfect continuation of the Hitch/Cole series. Parker fans are going to love it!" --Ed Harris, Academy Award-nominated actor
"Hitch and Cole, reminiscent of the steely eyed, soft-spoken lawmen Randolph Scott played in the movies, speak volumes to one another with a few words and a nod of the head." --"Associated Press"
"Parker's rightly known best for his mysteries. That'll happen when you create one of mystery fiction's most indelible characters - the Boston private detective Spenser....You read Parker because he could tell a story and make you care about his characters. Blue-Eyed Devil only hones Parker's legacy as an ace storyteller, in any genre, to the end." -- "The Chicago Sun Times "
"Add Virgil Cole and Everett Hitch to all the great characters that Robert B. Parker created over the decades to give us enjoyment and entertainment." "--BookReporter.com"
"Blue-Eyed Devil shines....a page-turner of the first order, and updated western that feels as fresh as anything out there....Virgil Cole never misses, not when it matters. Parker didn't either." --"The Boston Globe" ""Ironhorse" hits with the intensity of an eight-gauge shotgun blast... A rip-snorting tale full of sparse dialogue seasoned with wit as dry as an Oklahoma prairie wind and enough flying bullets and buckshot to fill a caboose... Virgil and Everett's fates are in excellent hands."
--"Tulsa World"
