​I have read most of it.  The reviewer doesn't criticize much of Pinker's
data, but focuses on what he left out or did not emphasize or what he said
that contradicts the reviewer's own book.  Not a bad review though.

There is a LOT of progress detailed in this book and everyone should know
these things, which very rarely appear on the news, because the news is
slanted towards negative stories.
