"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.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book
This was a cute book with an unusual twist - two 50-something adults meet who come from totally different backgrounds – one country and the other from the big city of LA (a little bit rock and roll – tongue in cheek), fall in love although they’re no spring chickens. There was a lot of emotion packed in but immediate chemistry between Bram and Lynne. They fought it all they could, finally gave in and then went along for the sweet ride. Watching them out of their comfort zone was fun to watch especially knowing they were each trying their best to make sense of what was going on. It was a hoot to see the give and take from both of them and how they each came to the realization that it was what they both wanted and then what they needed to do to cement the relationship. There was laughter, tears, awkwardness, angst, fear, family and friends along with lots of small town busybodies. Heartsfield Arkansas seemed the perfect backdrop for the storyline along with all the animal life. The descriptions of the small town, both people and places, made you feel you were there.
I’ve read books by this author before and enjoyed them. I look forward to reading others by her.
Favorite Quote: I look like crap When did i get so old? Maybe I’m too old for this. She’s older than I am, and she looks a helluva lot better. He tore his gaze from the mirror and focused on the toes of his battered boots instead.
"I saw you, and for the first time in a long time, I didn't want to see anything else."
This beautiful, comical love story will charm and warm your heart as much as the town of Heartsfield itself. I can't wait to read it all over again!
