"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


“Upon finishing this novel, you will likely find yourself asking the big questions. You may also find yourself selling your possessions, dusting off your passport, quitting your job, and buying a one-way ticket to the end of the earth. Karan Bajaj has written a compelling adventure, with vivid settings, meaty themes, and a satisfying conclusion.”—Jonathan Evison, author of The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving

“To the world, Max Pzoras is a winner—driven and successful. But the outward trappings of success can no longer hide his lack of inner grace. Max knows it, so he goes in search of his true purpose in India, where secrets are revealed and awe awaits. In elegant prose, with an energy that sustains and inspires, Karan Bajaj has written a novel to treasure. The characters and story he spins will leave you breathless, along with the knowledge that the spiritual journey of a lifetime begins with a single question.Adriana Trigiani, New York Times-bestselling author of The Shoemaker's Wife

“Karan Bajaj weaves a modern day epic you simply will not forget. He writes clean, simple prose that zips so fast you'll forget you're reading. He transcends his outlet and sends his creative heart directly into yours. Incredible.Neil Pasricha, New York Times-bestselling author of The Happiness Equation and The Book of Awesome

“A beautifully rendered epic journey… Transcendent yet readable, spiritual yet wildly and deliberately accessible, the novel works on many levels and excels at them all.”—New York Journal of Books
“From the snows of the Himalayas to the droughts of southern India, as varied as the subcontinent’s locations are its characters, including freewheeling young bikers and ageless yogis whose silences last for decades. Bajaj guides the reader along on a pleasurable journey.”—Publishers Weekly
“Riveting… Beautifully written, powerful in its deliverance and giving in its message, The Yoga of Max’s Discontent is one book that deserves to be read.”Fiction Foresight
“Remarkable. Siddhartha changed my life but The Yoga of Max’s Discontent is something more than Hesse. It is a novel profoundly relevant to our times, to a generation that is more concerned and attuned to moral and spiritual values than previous generations.”—Impakter Magazine

“In a literary market flooded with shallow yogic adventure stories both fact and fiction that promise little more than sensationalism or entertainment, here comes an important, authentic, believable, riveting account on the level of Hermann Hesse or Victor Frankl. This is a superbly written meditation on effort and grace, a do-or-die quest for spiritual transformation, a journey from darkness to light, and a psychological thriller, which strips away artifice in a relentless quest to discover meaning and shows us how the lotus can rise from the muck of a Bronx sewer to blossom calmly in the cool Himalayan moonlight.”—Sharon Gannon, co-author of Jivamukti Yoga

“Filled with adventure and excitement. A quest for answers that bother all of us at some level.Times of India

“An instant bestseller. One man’s epic quest to merge with the universal oneness.”—India Today

“A special story. Engaging, convincing, and highly readable. Keeps the readers engrossed till the very last page.The Statesman
