Summary
Global warming. Poverty. Violent conflict. Bad hotel service. But is the world really going to the dogs? BEST. TIMES. EVER. works through our most common complaints and miseries and explains why - believe it or not - things aren't as bad as they used to be. In fact, in almost every way, we're improving!From the serious (the number of people dying in wars has gone from 65,000 a year in the 1950s to 2,000 a year in this decade) to the frivolous ( Vertigo received bad reviews in 1957, but was recently voted the greatest movie ever made)
