"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.

But Mayne offers some respite for his lonely lighthouse worker with some fine action, interesting (and quite funny) alien visitors and a past love interest that prevents the story from being all about the loneliness in space. Also enjoyable are the space politics in play here and an impending war that he just might be able to prevent. Maybe.
It's really a fun read, folks. Recommended.
I didn't know what to expect with this book. I discovered it to be a fabulous, fast-paced, spy thriller in space. Part of the charm of this book is that we see the action from the perspective of first time astronaut David Dixon. If David doesn't know what is going on, then we the readers don't either! He takes the classic rule of Sci Fi - take a bad situation and make it worse - to the next level. The pace is unrelenting, yet never once goes too far or too fast.
Well done, Andrew Mayne.
I received this book from the author for editing and reviewing, but later purchased the book to help support the author.
The fast pace and very believable technology and the humor makes your book a winner for the worthy of reread pile. Thank you for creating such an exciting enjoyable read--I've already purchased another of yours and a copy of this one for my sister.
From the moment David Dixon witnesses his astronaut crew supervisor (and mentor) stow a gun in his space suit, the action doesn't let up in a rip-roaring story that begins in space and rockets around pretty much the entire Western Hemisphere before coming to a stunning conclusion.
Mayne also manages to insert a ton of space program anecdotes, not to mention actual science, that makes the book every more interesting, all without slowing the pace a bit.
Magician, TV star, podcaster, writer. Geez man, take a nap or something..
A great read!
