"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

I have never reviewed anything on Amazon before but I feel so indebted to Bill Johnson that I have to give him a review. I went to a big namefilm school for college and throughout the entire 4 years and thousandsof dollars, I never learned more about storytelling then I did readingthis 3 dollar kindle book. Bill Johnson really gives you the map to themaze. After 6 years of making movies, I had some idea on what made astory work and what didn't, but Bill Johnson really gives thetheoretical groundwork to what makes a story resonate with an audience.Not only did the book corroborate some ideas that I already had butenriched them and gave me so much more to think about. Thank You Bill!

(from Amazon)

From the Author

When I was young, I was an intuitive writer. I once wrote nine plays in one year, including full lengths.

But my writing always hit a certain ceiling.

Then I took a class from story analyst David Morgan, who taught me that understanding storytelling was something that could be understood.

I've spent my life going down that road, gathering and sharing understanding.

I welcome you to join me, for as long as it suits you.

Bill
