Praise

The Progress Paradox raises some provocative questions. . . . This is a book meant to challenge left and right–keep both sides off balance. . . . A welcome antidote to the demagoguery prevalent in political discussion today.”
–Los Angeles Times

“Well-constructed, civic-minded . . . full of compelling statistics and anecdotes . . . a convincing case for good cheer.”
–The New York Times Book Review

“Lively . . . combines a vast amount of scholarly research and reporting to generate a thoughtful, sustained argument.”
–BusinessWeek

“Utterly engaging . . . There are surprises all through it, and some startling refutations of conventional wisdoms.”
–Baltimore Sun

“With the lively wit and contrarian insight that is a regular feature of his articles in The New Republic . . . Mr. Easterbrook offers a bracing reminder of what is too often forgotten but difficult to deny: In the West in the past fifty years, life has gotten steadily better.”
–The Wall Street Journal

“Excellent.”
–The Economist


Fascinating. . . may well be this fall’s version of The Tipping Point.”
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
