Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on November 16, 2017
Being bombarded with negativity in the news perpetually about murder, rape, terrorism etcetera, it was refreshing to hear scientific evidence showing that we actually live in a relatively peaceful time. The only negative aspect of the book is that Dr. Steven Pinker gives a free pass to Islam and barely even mentions the Middle East. He very much made his point that the West has become much more civilized. However, I know with certainty that he would have an extraordinarily difficult time making this point with regard to the so-called "religion of peace."
