The Roots of Progress

Progress: Ten Reasons to Look Forward to the Future

Johan Norberg

A summary of several major areas of human progress, not only in technology, industry, and living standards, but also in society and government. The chapters cover food, sanitation, life expectancy, poverty, violence, the environment, literacy, freedom, equality, and childhood. Many interesting stories and histories; it’s like a shorter version of Enlightenment Now without the connection to underlying philosophical trends.
