"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.

About the Author
Gary Deering started his first career during the Apollo Space Age as an Aeronautical Test Engineer conducting thermal-vacuum and vibration tests on Satellites and Satellite components and ended it a quarter of a century later as a Heat Transfer specialist designing hardware for liquid cooled Super Computers. Gary is a highly trained technical thinker. He started his second career as a Psychotherapist with a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology and ended it fleeing the State's (Minnesota's) proclamation that he is not a psychologist. Unlike some modern day, non-criminal CEO types, Gary knows how to stay out of jail (don t martyr yourself to the waves you weren t suppose to make). Gary started his third and final career as a writer when he was a sophomore in High School and fell in love with the words in a scene out of George Eliot's Silas Marner, the one where Silas opens the small door to the shallow coal bin beneath his kitchen's floor to happily discover the missing baby Eppie there. The baby looks up and says, Eppie in da toe hole? and this author was hooked for life, it just took him a little longer than most to discover his true love. Gary is old enough to know that motivation by love is the best kind of motivation that there is and that human memory in at least one of its functions is perfect when it is measured by the appropriate yardstick: the ability to store and recreate the personal value-meaning of experienced events. Interpreting and making sense out of these re-creations, including the ones gifted to us in our dreams, will be dealt with in BiO Spiritualism's next book: egoAerodynamics, Book 2.
