    Life is getting better 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.

    "Really Good"
    Overall

    I was worried that the book would be too simplistic and repetitive, but it's smart and original and full of insight. It convinced me that people's lives in the past were worse than I thought, and the future looks bright, and humanity is on a steady upward trend.

    This was one of my favorite listens, and I recommend it to anyone who likes good nonfiction.
