About

Overview

A New York Times Bestselling Author

Is the world falling apart? Is progress obsolete? In this elegant assessment of the human condition, cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and follow the data. In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise worldwide. Far from being a naïve hope, the Enlightenment has worked.
