"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.

Lisa smiled as we walked back into the warmth of reception. "Bet you've found something you like, haven't you?" she said with a knowing look in her eyes. "Maybe," Juliet replied. "What can you tell us about the little dog in the stables, the one under the heat lamp?"
The little dog that Author Brian Porter is talking about is Sheba. She was underweight, her hair had been shaved off. She had skin abrasions and deep ligature marks around her neck. She had been thrown on a rubbish pile and was barely alive. The cause of these injuries - she had been used as bait to train fighting dogs.
I'm an avid animal lover, especially dogs. I've always had one and can't imagine my life without one of my best friends. When I started reading this book I couldn't stop the tears and the anger that would build up inside me. How can anyone be so inhumane?
I've read all of Author Brian Porter's books about the dogs he has rescued and I can't say enough about the kind heart he, his wife and daughters all have. In my book, they are all some of the great ones for bringing these babies out of their living and sometimes dying hell into a beautiful, loving, comfortable life.
If you're a dog lover as I am, this is another one of those books that you simply must read. It will really open your eyes to the cruel life these dogs live just for what some really sick people call a 'sport.' I would love to put them through what they put these loving babies through.
The element of conflict is expertly woven throughout the story as Porter details the journey of the dog from its adverse beginnings to its place as a beloved member of its new family. The conflict against nature is manifested as the dog survives a feral environment, enduring vicious battles and deprivation en route to the Porter home. A conflict with society ensues as the dog exhibits frenzied reactions to loud noises and sudden movements. It causes a severe injury to another pet as Sheba loses control during one scene in the narrative. The conflict with self is finally resolved as the animal is able to overcome its violent urges and settles into its new home at last.
For animal lovers, family narrative readers as well as those who enjoy a cozy tale of man’s best friend, Sheba by Brian L. Porter is a worthy read.
