"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.

I highly recommend this book. The Turner's adventures are enjoyable and fun to read. This series is a gem.
Turner is great at stringing together humorous, trenchant anecdotes to give the reader a real sense of what this journey was like. But her stories are undergirded by something deeper--they point to the human connection that travelers feel for the strangers they meet along the way. As a person who's traveled through Brazil a lot (including with my own parents when I was as young as Turner's daughters) I really connected with this book, from the horrors (oh my gosh, the hammock room!) to the sublime nights on Brazilian beaches. By far my favorite part was her description of Carnaval in Sao Paulo, which (as she discovered) is so much more than people think.
I actually don't know if I'd have the guts to do what Turner does, and take my kids on extended trips to unknown countries where I don't speak the language fluently, with a somewhat loose itinerary. I guess I'm happy to enjoy her family's adventures from the comfort of my armchair. Very nicely written.
One of the places they stayed in Brazil, a remote jungle lodge, reminded me of a remote island my husband and I visited with two of my uncles last year in Costa Rica. I admire how Amanda and her family can make the most out of meager accommodations and have an absolute blast while staying in them.
