"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

About the Author
The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child "stand head and shoulders above their rivals" (Publishers Weekly). Preston and Child's Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities were chosen by readers in a National Public Radio poll as being among the one hundred greatest thrillers ever written, and Relic was made into a number-one box office hit movie. They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series and their recent novels include Fever Dream, Cold Vengeance, Two Graves, and Gideon's Corpse. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for the New Yorker and Smithsonian magazines. Lincoln Child is a former book editor who has published five novels of his own, including the huge bestseller Deep Storm.
Readers can sign up for The Pendergast File, a monthly "strangely entertaining note" from the authors, at their website, www.PrestonChild.com. The authors welcome visitors to their alarmingly active Facebook page, where they post regularly.

Having just returned from visiting the ruins of the Southwest, the vivid descriptions of the canyons, valleys, and desert were spot on. I remember images of my first read several years ago, but the accuracy of the prose is a credit to the research that went into this story. And, speaking of the story, it is an absolute page turner..
The story was intriguing, the characters well developed and interesting. I know the authors put a lot of research into their books, so even though I know I'm reading fiction, I always feel I'm getting a bit of an education, too. I find their stories lead me to research what they're writing about and love expanding my knowledge.
Sometimes there is a bit too much description, but that's just me. My imagination is pretty active so I don't need a ton of description in order to see a scene.
Love these authors--together and singularly!
It's a good summer read, and I will certainly purchase more books by them--both as co-authors and individually.
