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

Review

Barry does a great job of mixing gore and comedy--a dead dog gets tossed onto a banquet table at a recycling awards dinner, while his protagonist blunders into a shack full of drunken hit men. Barry's humor keeps him from inventing a moralistic conflict between the collective David and the corporate Goliath. In fact, you almost side with Goliath because of Barry's mercilessly hilarious depiction of politically correct, slogan-spouting members of the collective, as well as their allies, marching through Berkeley on a ragtag Halloween protest, with our wannabe journalist as Santa Claus.
-- Bob Schildgen, Sierra
