How do we retain hope in possibility and goodness when we are bombarded with negative headlines, dire stories in the evening news, and politics that focus on what's broken in society? In his informative new book, Up!, David Niven gives us 365 examples of how life is better now than ever before. Each entry is supported by data showing that life today is a vast improvement over the past and continues to get better every day. We learn, for example, that people really do care, our cleanliness habits are making us safer, violent crimes are on the decline, the list of planets is growing, and we're smarter and happier than we may think.
