About the Original Book:
In Factfulness, Rosling has compiled a life of work and research into a call-to-action for reason, rationality, and data. He argues that most people assume the world is worse off today than it was in the past, and that this is patently false. Using decades, and sometimes centuries, of data, he systemically counters many common notions held today--that the world is more violent, that more people live in poverty, and that population growth is not truly exponential--to name a few.

If you've been feeling like the world has been getting worse off, that violence is on the rise, or that humanity has already "peaked" then this book will challenge everything you've been feeling. Delve deep into the world of data where Pinker presents rock-solid arguments for the betterment of humanity as a whole. Steven Pinker wants to prove that we are living in a world that is better off than it has ever been, and it will only continue to get better. In Enlightenment Now, Pinker argues that the best tools we have come from the 18th century ideals of reason, science, progress and humanism, and we can leverage them in very 21st century ways by using data to tell the story of our modern world.

Enlightenment Now is Steven Pinker’s love letter to the Enlightenment. Knowledge, he argues, is our best tool against the traps set by atrophying political parties, salacious media, and theocratic social norms. With reason, science, and humanism—the foundational principles of the Enlightenment—and our modern ways of measuring progress by way of data, Pinker elegantly proves that the world is in a better place than it used to be, and things will only keep getting better so long as we stay committed to those principles that have served us and still do.

About the Original Book:
Daniel Coyle’s The Culture Code: The Secrets of Highly Successful Groups asks the question, “What characteristics do successful organizational cultures share?” After conducting research of his own, Coyle finds that there are commonalities between groups as different as movie studios, jewel thieves, shoe companies, and basketball teams that make all of these groups among the best in their respective industries. It turns out that the most successful groups are not necessarily the smartest, biggest, or best equipped, but the most connected. A highly approachable read rich in insight, Coyle’s book is a guide that will prove valuable to any grouping seeking to create a more productive, enjoyable culture.
