"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.

All of us find ourselves doing the “Same Old Stuff” (SOS) and often living a very unsatisfied existence as a result. What would it take to move us forward? How can we do things differently? More importantly how can we be “Well On the Way” (WOW) to our goals and fulfilling our dreams?
Johnson lays out clear and succinct matrix to help you get there. It is part motivational speech, part anecdotal encouragement, and part step-by-step outline. As she says in the introduction, “This book will help you clarify your SOS and WOW situation, and give you the steps and the courage to get where you want to be.” She goes on to say, “So often, the first step is the hardest to take. Don’t regret the things you didn’t say or didn’t try. Take a chance and enjoy the flight! Trust yourself. It will be so much more fun than you ever imagined. Just Jump!”
We never get “there”. As Johnson points out, “In reality, we are never finished; we are always on our way to becoming the masterpiece we are meant to be.” But this book will help you get “well on the way”. As you travel down the road you will want to hang onto the book and use it for the next rut in which you find yourself. Over and over again, it will give you to boost you need to make it to the next rung on your dream. As she says, “Just Jump!”
The direction and exercises in the book are on target and accelerate the process of figuring out effective ways to proceed in the face of challenges. For example, the book guides you to answer questions that not only make options clearer and build greater confidence, but also get you to find ways to help people and be more effective. It also helps me to explain good ways forward to others because it helps with connecting the dots on how situations could play out and what to clarify in your mind.
I believe Margaret Johnson's engineering experience adds value to her approaches, and I appreciate how she explains the reasoning behind how progress can be made throughout the book. As an example, the chapter on busting assumptions to break barriers is highly relevant. The stories are good too. I very much recommend this book to anyone seeking effective ways to make progress and put the pieces together. I get a lot out of this book.
In summary, it is a great guide for connecting constructive ways to reduce uncertainty and move forward to get the results you want.
