Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The war between optimism and pessimism in world thought is fast reaching epic proportions. Pessimists believe that we must accept and accommodate terror, tolerate irresponsibility, and accept the innate corruption of humanity. Optimists, by contrast, believe that the world is steadily progressing—that the willingness to terrorize others can be driven out of the minds of those who believe it, that maturity is a reachable goal for all, and the inherent goodness of humanity should be celebrated and supported.

One hundred years ago, the remarkable Helen Keller wrote a brilliant treatise on the power of optimism. It is reprinted as this book, to bring light and hope to the thinking of our modern generation.
