My rating: 4 of 5 stars
While it often reads more like a scholarly journal than a book, this book does present some interesting data to suggest areas of good in our overly pessimistic world. It touches on myths and realities and explains its stance on both. There is a decidedly conservative Christian slant to most of the topics, but still has a lot to offer people of other beliefs. Some of the references seem a bit dubious but most seem to have a scholarly background. A good read for someone looking to refute the idea that the world is getting worse.
