Enlightenment Now is such a truly brilliant book, elegantly written, sparkling with wit, driving nails hard home on every page, I can only conclude that the few carping, mean-spirited negative reviewers are jealous.      source

I am in the middle of listening to @sapinker’s ”Enlightenment Now”. Simply brilliant! A must for anyone trying to make sense of the world. Factual optimism. Glad mother-in-law is getting me the physical version of the book for Christmas. Will re-read.      source
It is the most optimistic book I’ve read in a long time.      source
