Review of Enlightenment NOW

Enlightenment NOW
The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism,
and Progress


Reviewed by Roy Murry, Author

Put your thinking hat on your head. I am somewhat intelligent. LOL. To read this book, you need to be a person with cognitive intelligence.

It will be normal, when reading this extensive delving into the history of man's development through today's diverse world, to disagree or agree with some of the author's premises of that evolution.  A little background in Philosophy and Psychology will help you understand some of his ideas.

However, a reader, with limited knowledge of the above, will be educated by some for Mr. Pinker's detailed evaluations and defenses of his ideologies about the case studies enclosed which are liberal progressive leaning. In all instances, you will stop reading and think about the commentary whether you like it or not.

Apart from some of the author’s pontificating, the read was worth the price. I disagree with Bill Gates, it’s not the best book I ever read, which is subjective.
