It's Better Than It Looks: Reasons for Optimism in an Age of Fear
Author: Gregg Easterbrook
Avaliable on Amazon
If anyone is inclined to disagree off the cuff, I'd suggest checking out Gregg Easterbrook's It's Better Than It Looks. There are some valid criticisms, but he makes a great case for how much better society is now than it was in the recent past. It's a super quick read and is a jumping off point for investigating some more interesting questions.
