"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

“As a television journalist, I know the incredible power of story to connect people and issues, and Storycatcher reminds us how essential it is to speak our truth in the world. Christina's book travels the world on the page and helps us put feelings and experiences into words. Her work is a great gift.” — Lisa Ling, host of National Geographic Ultimate Explorer, and special contributor to Oprah “I am absolutely entranced by this book. I felt woven into its stories and honored by its sincere invitation and guidance to recall my own stories. Christina has created a masterful work, one that reconnects us to the joy of being human and the goodness we create when we tell our stories and listen to those of others. This book brings more goodness into the world.” —Margaret J. Wheatley, author of Leadership and the New Science

-- Margaret J. Wheatley, author of Leadership and the New Science

"Storycatcher is an invaluable resource and guide that highlights the oldest healing-teaching practice found in all cultures -- the art of storytelling. The timeless gift of storytelling and storycatching continues to provide oral, written, and visual pathways for transmitting what is meaningful, wise, and relevant from generation to generation. Christina Baldwin demonstrates how memory and the imagination are braided together in stories to focus our abilities to heal ourselves and change the world around us. A timely and important contribution that can be used in practical and inspirational ways by anyone, anywhere in the world!"
-- Angeles Arrien, cultural anthropologist and author of The Four-Fold Way and The Second Half of Life

"For my work, I have surveyed a library full of self-help books about writing personal stories and the process of working with people around listening and telling, but I think Christina Baldwin's Storycatcher might have finally gotten it right -- an essential sourcebook for doing Storywork. Christina Baldwin comes from the journaling community, working with writing and group process. The book integrates her wisdom and experience in group process and teaching with her skill as an exceptional storyteller and writer. I enjoyed her stories, but I also felt they were expertly used to demonstrate the various points she was making about the storycatching process. Her arguments for group-based story work as a process for self-awareness, but, equally important, as a form of social activism, are absolutely incontrovertible. We need the story revolution in order to make sense of our lives, but also, it seems, to save the world."
-- Joe Lambert, founder and director of the Center for Digital Storytelling

"Christina Baldwin is a masterful storyteller! In Storycatcher she weaves a tapestry of story that captures the dynamics of storytelling: its power to heal, to acknowledge our longing, and to articulate the hidden places within our being. Curl up with this book, and a new world will open to you."
-- Lauren Artress, author of Walking a Sacred Path

"We need powerful stories to inspire us to act, and to explain the kind of world we want to bring into being. This book will help."
-- Paul Rogat Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
