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.

Enlightenment Now is the most captivating book I have listened to in a long time. Steven Pinker brings a pragmatic and unbiased perspective to the biggest challenges we face as a species and global family. A refreshing, indepth and surprisingly hopeful stastical analysis with a dash of humor. A must read for everyone who is worried, hopeless or overwhelmed by the state of the world.
