Humans - Progress, Not Perfection

Microsoft Founder Bill Gates' calls “Enlightment Now” his "favorite book of all time”.

The Canadian-American cognitive psychologist, and the author of at least 9 books, including “The Better Angels of Our Nature: A History of Violence and Humanity”, speaks to the scepticism of our age with evidence and a faith in a common human predilection for personal progress, security and happiness.
