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

This book can really cause a change for good in your life. I know it did for me.
The self help part contains a lot of advice that can be found a lot of places such as seek wisdom, forgive others, and be persistent. There are four other 'lessons' as well. None of it is too Earth shattering.
The story is about a man, David Ponder, who loses his job, has a daughter with medical problems, is broke, etc. He has pretty much given up on life. He then begins a science fiction journey of traveling to various places and encountering various historical figures including Harry Truman, Abraham Lincoln, Anne Frank, King Solomon, and others. The story is somewhat entertaining, but again, it is nothing too great.
This is not a bad book to read, but one may not want to put it at the top of the reading list.
