Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? In this elegant assessment of the human condition in the third millennium, cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, which play to our psychological biases. Instead, follow the data: Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise, not just in the West but worldwide.

Amazing book, one of the best I've read! He is such a thorough analyst of Humanity and misconceptions throughout the world with regards to thinking things are getting worse in general. His analytical tactics have made me much more optimistic and enlightened for sure!
