"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.

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-8 After a binge-drinking incident leaves her hospitalized, Alex is "banished" to the wilderness of Minnesota to help her father with his eagle research project. Determined to prove her usefulness, the 13-year-old decides to paddle to a remote island, remove a fishing lure from an eagle's nest, and band the eaglets. However, the rescue operation goes terribly wrong when her actions cause an eaglet to fall from the nest, breaking a wing. Alex quickly realizes that she must take the injured bird to the Ranger Station but rough weather strands her on a bat-infested island with little food and water. Casanova has written an eco-adventure story that also provides valuable information about eagle research; unfortunately, the survival story is hampered by a cloying secondary plot line that focuses on Alex and her inability to cope with the death of her younger brother, which slows the pace of the story. -Doris Losey, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library, Tampa, FL

From Booklist

Gr. 6-9. Thirteen-year-old Alexe Castille-Rede carries a lot of emotional baggage. Her little brother died of cancer; her parents have separated; and Alex, after almost dying at a drunken pool party, is now stuck with her father for the rest of the summer, helping him band eagles in Rainy Lake, Minnesota. Determined to prove herself to her father, she tries to save an eaglet on her own while Dad is away, and ends up stranded on a remote island with the little creature, facing a storm, hunger, a bear, and her own tangled emotions. Although this may not be another Julie of the Wolves, it's still an obviously well-researched survival novel with lots of local color and a teenage heroine who turns out to have plenty of grit. A good choice for reluctant readers. Jean Franklin
