"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.

Nick you’re my favourite writer. Thank you!
It's a lovely story about a woman dying of cancer who makes a journal of her life with her beloved husband to be read by him after her death, telling him some of the things, both painful and beautiful, that were never said while she was alive. Catherine uses photographs and cassette tapes to talk to her husband, Sean. Their life together was wonderful, but not perfect, as Catherine reveals some painful truths to her husband.
Nick Alexander is arguably one of the best writers of our time. I've been reading his books for awhile now and he has never disappointed me once. When I sit down to read one of his books, I know it's going to be wonderful.
The chapters of the book start with a short description of each photograph of the weekly opened envelopes, and then the verbal contents of the cassette which Catherine recorded during her final weeks in hospital. We go back to the beginning of Catherine and Sean's relationship when they first met at a fairground and hear from Catherine her first hand impression of meeting Sean. The following chapters give milestone markers of their marriage, the birth of their daughter, April, and various parties and workplace memories – some of which even Sean had forgotten about.
I thought this was a very clever, if not quite unique, way of telling the story of an, at times, troubled marriage through snapshots of memory. Although the premise sounds depressing, it has very uplifting and amusing moments. It is written with emotion and sensitivity and also shows how father and daughter come to terms with the loss of wife and mother in different ways. I am ashamed to say that this is the first book by Nick Alexander I have read, but it won't be the last.
I did enjoy this as I have enjoyed all of this author's work.
