Enlightenment Now: by Steven Pinker | Conversation Starters

Enlightenment Now, Steven Pinker's new book is a refreshing, new perspective on the situation of the world in general. As the subtitle says Pinker advocates, "the case for reason, science, humanism, and progress". Pinker challenges the idea that we are in an increasing global crisis and that our future is bleak, his view is that the world is improving, and this book is his proof. By using over 70 graphs he demonstrates in no uncertain terms how people are living longer, healthier, better lives. This optimistic focus is one of the reasons this has become Bill Gates' "new favorite book of all time."
