"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

Snappy dialogue, vivid characters, and taut prose keep the pace fast and furious. Pourteau makes good use of a classic theme in science fiction--"the danger from tinkering with the inner workings of the body's clock, the most miraculous (and delicately balanced) of machines ever created." He also pulls us, far too deftly for my comfort, into the horror of being a human in the path of a hurricane. -- Carol Kean, Perihelion Online Science Fiction Magazine (perihelionsf.com/1606/reviews.htm)

About the Author

Currently residing in College Station, Texas, Chris Pourteau has made a living at one time or another as a teacher, a lab technician helping to recover one of Christopher Columbus's ships, and a technical writer and editor. Pourteau cites writers both modern and classical as influences, notable among them Bernard Cornwell, Stephen King, George R.R. Martin, Toni Morrison, Edgar Allan Poe, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Mark Twain. Other major influences include fellow Texan and singer-songwriter James McMurtry, Groucho Marx, and a little-known comedy troupe from England you've probably never heard of named Monty Python. (Python is always happy to have someone shill their name as long as they don't have to pay for it and might get a chance to sell you something, so there you go, guys. Regards from Texas.) As far as reading interests go, Pourteau prefers fantasy, science fiction, and historical fiction, which you could probably guess from his list of influences. Occasionally, he likes taking random chances on new writers--new to him, anyway--and has recently become enamored of the works of Roberto Calas, Nick Cole, Suzanne Collins, Glen Cook, Manel Jennifer Ellis, and John Scalzi among others. He's also a die-hard Star Trek fan and prefers gritty dramas like Jessica Jones, Hell on Wheels, Homeland, and The Walking Dead when he flips on the tube.
