"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

Review

January Magazine, 3/22/12
“For his admirers and students of his style, the book is a worthwhile read.”
 
National Post (Canada), 3/25/12
“A foreshadowing of Kerouac at his best, a kind of sweet, unassuming persona that made his writing very engaging.”
 


Chicago Reader, 4/13
“I loved Kerouac’s first novel, The Sea Is My Brother…[It] left me with that feeling that life is full of poems, pain, colorful characters, and small moments that matter.”
 
Milwaukee Shepherd Express, 4/12/12
The Sea is My Brother is chock-full of pathos, anticipation and hurt. Kerouac’s characters, including the small role players, are a perfect blend of real people living real lives. It was a brilliant, youthful performance by the author, years before he changed the pace of literature with On the Road.
 
Chicago New City, 4/16/12
“A captivating preview into the author—and his works—to be…A complete story, romantic, energetic, exuberant and even brash, qualities Kerouac never outgrew.”
 
Charleston Post & Courier, 5/27/12
“The fascination, and perhaps the value of this book, is that it presents itself as a clear precursor to the books that followed. Given Kerouac’s subsequent impact, it is an important artifact in the popular literature of the time.”
