"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.

From Library Journal
Actor Erwin's career spanned five decades, but nobody but the most avid classic movie buff is likely to know him by name. Likened to Will Rogers, he missed true movie-stardom despite film credits that included Joe Palooka, Our Town, and Heading for Heaven. He was probably best known for his 1950s TV series, Trouble with Father, but his modesty and lack of self-promotion contributed to his being largely forgotten today. Cornes (English, Odessa Coll.) attempts to right this wrong by presenting a detailed and well-researched analysis of Erwin's life and work. However, that strength is also this book's weakness; it reads like a dissertation and lacks the juicy bits lovers of the celebrity biography genre hunger for. Also, the price is prohibitive for many public libraries. For comprehensive academic libraries. Rosellen Brewer, Monterey Cty. Free Lib., Salinas, CA
