"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.

The end of the book consists of appendices of case histories and the opportunity to purchase marketing advice. I believe the value of this book is in providing a general framework of how to approach setting up an educational online course. The reader will get strategy and theory but not the detailed “how to.”
If you are looking for a step by step guide, this book is not for you. It is an interesting read, but in the final analysis, it will involve lots of effort on the reader’s part to fill in the gaps.
The reviewer is the author of the Kindle book entitled: Sex Education for Adults
Secrets To Amazing Sex and Happily Ever After Too
Iny makes this point, and presents the exciting idea that solopreneurs with niche expertise now have the opportunity to make good livelihoods sharing that expertise through *personal engagement* with small numbers of students—who can provide the feedback needed to engage larger numbers of students.
Even though the book is mostly about ideas, there is some practical advice here: namely that it's best to test these waters in a low-risk, rapid-prototype kind of way that builds momentum. Iny suggests following a simple roadmap that involves quickly sketching out a pilot course and offering it for sale at a discount in order to get feedback and course correct along the way toward a more detailed course and larger business.
These are ideas that need to be heard, both by entrepreneurs, and potential students of online courses.
No. I’m pretty sure some of the low-rating comments are from people who haven’t read the book. Not sure what the purpose is, there, but that’s my opinion.
Full disclosure: I am taking the training at this time. However, I didn’t “get there” without four things: noticing there are NO claims you’ll make money FAST nor will you succeed without a lot of work; reading this book and thinking through it all as the educator I am; going through a boatload of free videos and even real-time workshop/coaching sessions CBL (Course Builders Laboratory) offered online; getting a sterling recommendation to go forward from someone I trust and who launched a class using this method.
As I write this, I am a third of the way through the training. CBL makes this process as painless as possible, but I can tell you the book, “Teach and Grow Rich” offers much of it. And I mean MUCH.
My background is teaching biology and zoology. I’m well-versed in creating lessons for people who are new to (and maybe afraid of :->) a topic. But … did I think I could do this on my own, just using what I found in the book? Maybe. For a minute. And I could have accomplished it, I think, because Danny teaches the way I do (understandable increments).
But, I wouldn’t have worked as quickly, had my coach’s insights and excellent help, the details of a totally step-by-step process, and tech help when needed.
If this is a sham, I have yet to find where. IMHO, this book is a good indication of what you’ll receive in a CBL course and is proving to be a great way to review items as I work. The book is valuable on its own, mainly because you get so much good information at almost no cost. Even if you don’t proceed to the training, there’s a lot to learn – and use – here.
Feel free to check me out on LinkedIn. Yes, I’m a real person, and I approve this message (ha!).

Good overview on mindset for course creation for someone who is looking to get started.
Doesn't talk the specifics about the key problem of marketing.
Totally in tune with Danny's ideas in it. It was a rather interesting eye opening read.
He sells an online course on how to do what the title says, The book doesn't actually tell you how to do it.Read more
