"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.

I have read two or three other books that take place in the same reality as Rogue Planet and, while there were a few things I felt could have been improved, on the whole I enjoyed the books and stories. One criticism of previous works was that the timelines stretched so far that I felt some disconnect from the characters. In Rogue Planet, I felt that disconnect again, to the point that I didn't care that much about the main characters. Sure, I was cheering for the good guys, but because the bad and the good were so clear, I felt the characters became more characatures than characters.
That doesn't mean that the book is without merit. It was just not up to the quality of Moore's previous work. There are surprises in the plot, and the book provides additional background information on the 'multiverse' Humans, Tali, and Rangers inhabit.
This book felt more like a young adult book (perhaps younger, if one discounts the sexual content and the violence of the evil King and his men).
I realize that the author was trying a new approach to his worlds in this book, and I do credit him for trying and perhaps learning.
Overall, I liked the premis but the delivery could use a bit more polish.
