The weekend is coming; maybe you'd like something to read? Here in one spot on Amazon is a list of all my books currently available (19 books, 4 short stories and a few other books that quote me). One Kindle book is now available for free through Sunday. If you're an Amazon Prime member, you can borrow one Kindle book per month for free.

I have observed that not the man who hopes when others despair, but the man who despairs when others hope, is admired by a large class of persons as a sage. 

--John Stuart Mill, Speech on 'perfectibility'

One of the quotes that appears in the book, The Rational Optimist. Just finished reading it. Excellent book. What’s it about? This is the book's description: Life is getting better—and at an accelerating rate. Food availability, income, and life span are up; disease, child mortality, and violence are down — all across the globe. Though the world is far from perfect, necessities and luxuries alike are getting cheaper; population growth is slowing; Africa is following Asia out of poverty; the Internet, the mobile phone, and container shipping are enriching people’s lives as never before. The pessimists who dominate public discourse insist that we will soon reach a turning point and things will start to get worse. But they have been saying this for two hundred years.
