More books Seth recommended in 2011

In 2011, Seth recommended "The Better Angels of our Nature" by Steven Pinker and said...

I heard Steve Pinker present on this book. He stood for 45 minutes and spoke... not in words, or even sentences, but in complete paragraphs, with no notes.

The subject matter is important, but far more interesting is his eloquence and the erudite nature of his argument. It's rare to see someone who knows his stuff as well and isn't afraid to share his insight.

Believe it or not, today we may be living in the most peaceful moment in our species' existence. In his gripping and controversial new work, New York Times bestselling author Steven Pinker shows that despite the ceaseless news about war, crime, and terrorism, violence has actually been in decline over long stretches of history. Exploding myths about humankind's inherent violence and the curse of modernity, this ambitious book continues Pinker's exploration of the essence of human nature, mixing psychology and history to provide a remarkable picture of an increasingly enlightened world.
