"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

5***** "A great introduction to the BIG adventure!...Stir together the best ingredients from Jurassic Park, Aliens, and Starship Troopers, and you've discovered Orbs.

-Arthur Bradley, Ph.D., Amazon Vine Voice/NASA Scientist

5***** "Chilling prequel to Orbs...Earth changes forever."

-Cherly Stout, Amazon Vine Voice

From the Author

After writing ORBS I had severalbeta readers ask me about the solar storms mentioned in chapter six. Theywanted to know more about what created them and how they destroyed and poisoned much ofthe planet. Thus the idea for Solar Storms was born.

The prequel takes place five yearsbefore the events of ORBS. Diving right into the discovery of the solarstorms, this short story describes how the coronal mass ejection wreaked havoc on the planet. In addition, it gives the reader a better idea of where these storms really originated. Were they really just a cosmic event or was something sinister behind them?

I feel it is also necessary to explain something so customers are fully aware of what they are downloading/buying. As a couple readers point out, there is one chapter in Solar Storms thatcomes from ORBS. The other four chapters in Solar Storms were written with the intent of filling in some gaps that provide the reader with more knowledge going into ORBS. And while it isn't absolutely necessary to read this prequel before ORBS, Solar Storms is meant to be an introduction to the larger adventure.

Thank you for reading. - NSS
