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

Editorial Reviews

About the Author

As a child, Chip wrote terrible poetry and read hundreds of novels. In high school he wrote more poetry, also terrible, and a scifi novel that in retrospect is unreadable. He had clearly learned nothing. Blind to the mounting evidence, in college he studied art, creative writing, and children's literature with the amazing Lucille Clifton. Then he got a job selling paper. 17 years later, he wrote his first screenplay, Rocket Summer, which sold ten years after that. See? Don't ever give up. Then he turned the screenplay into this novel, which is way better than the stuff he used to write. Promise.
