"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 the Publisher: "Tom is a photo-reportage over the domestic circumstances of a young man reaching puberty. Tom lives in a small village in the countryside in Upper-Austria. He works at a construction company, lives together with his mother, his stepfather and his stepbrother on a desolate farm in the middle of nowhere. In his free time Tom listens to his stereo or hangs out in his car. He meets his Turkish friends, smokes from a pack of Memphis cigarettes and works out on his home gym. He often wears his favourite sweater with the word 'Versace' while he works and is currently serving for a year in the Austrian army. From 2004 until 2006, Paul Kranzler photographed Tom, his family and his surroundings. As in the book Land of Milk and Honey, Paul captured the intimacy of his subject. From Tom working out on his home gym to the family dog playing in the yard, all is captured in bold and stark color photographs that only Kranzler could take."
