UPRISING Paperback – November 23, 2010
"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.

If you still read paper books (and if you are apt to be bothered by the problems I mentioned), then I would recommend you purchase a print copy. The Kindle edition of this book was apparently an afterthought.
The content of the book itself probably deserves 4 stars. I've read about half of it, and it seems like a good book overall, though it does suffer at times from the epidemic of excessive wordiness so common to modern Christian non-fiction. Despite that, McManus regularly shares worthwhile and profound thoughts, so keep your highlighter within arms reach.
The key focus of Erwin's book revolves around the fact Jesus washed his disciples feet as he modeled servant-leadership to his followers. McManus argues this model still applies today. I agree. Too many books on leadership talk nothing of character, McManus turns this on its ear. His book is all about character and out of it you will be a better leader.
In having the privelege of seeing McManus practice what he preaches, this is a man who is a servant-leader. Erwin pastors a church in Los Angeles called Mosaic, and serves his church well. I cannot give this book a higher recommendation than 5 stars, but it really is a 10. A+
