"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.

Part of the problem may be e-book formatting. There are instaces of "1" used as "I", and "0" for "O" throughout the book. But, I can live with issues like that. Misspellings, also not an issue as long as I can make out the word intended. The problem for me was that sentence and paragraph breaks were missing, which made coversations and scenes very difficult to follow. Some scenes just didn't make sense because multiple characters were present, making it difficult or impossible to know who was speaking or acting.
The characters were also not written very well, coming off as juvenile throughout. This is what mainly gives it that "middle school student" feel.
There is, of course, and overlying Climate Change/Global warming theme, albeit man-made beyond a doubt. So, some readers may find the theme distasteful.
Overall, I was disappointed in the book. I was looking forward to reading it, as the discription sounded interesting, but in the end I just couldn't get into it.
~As the book that launched Robert W. Walker's writing career, it deserves some serious attention.
Granted, this book was written in 1979...but that's little consolation for the reader who makes it to the end of Sub Zero.
