Nobody will admit it, but the world is getting better. At least compared to five years ago. Mortal threats abound (as they always do), but Bush is gone, the terrorists are only background noise, people and governments are starting to take climate change seriously, and the Great Recession wasn’t as bad as advertised. Gwynne Dyer traces his five-year transition from despair to faint hope through his newspaper columns, reworked into a coherent whole.
