"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.

Then one day, after rummaging though a dumpster in a back ally, Jim discovers a small silver drone. It appears to be a toy quadcopter with a shiny silver skin without the propellers. He thinks this excellently crafted drone could be worth a lot of money, so he figures out a way to transport the heavy craft back to his truck. Once there, a blue light from the drone envelops him, reduces his size to that of a mouse, and a door to the ship swings open and a ladder extends.
This was Jim’s introduction to Vincent, the AI (artificial intelligence) on the starship. It seems that Vincent needs Jim to find an object that is not only important for the survival of his planet, but for the survival of Earth.
Thus begins Jonathan G. Meyer’s science fiction novel, Vincent that is set in St. Louis, Missouri and a remote Caribbean island. Meyer takes on many social issues including homelessness, immigration, divorce, social media, and climate change in a novel that is fast-paced with exciting plot shifts that will keep readers guessing until the dramatic conclusion.
