Enlightenment Now, from anonymous

November 18, 2018 |

 Enlightenment Now by Steven Pinker, I reckon, may become one of Chair's favorite books.

Pinker describes the fantastic improvements in health, life spans, and happiness since the Enlightenment of the 1800s.

Despite widespread denial by many the world has seen an explosive increase in health, lifespan, wealth, productivity, reduction in crime, poverty, disease and he cites the statistics.

Truly a record to inspire optimism.

It's a quirk of human nature not to be able to recognize the improvements.

A must read!
