This book is absolutely incredible.

For anybody interested in the human psyche or criminology (everybody).. this book is for you.

9.5/10.

“The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined is a 2011 book by Steven Pinker arguing that violence in the world has declined both in the long run and in the short, and suggests explanations to why this has occurred.[1]

The phrase “the better angels of our nature” stems from the last words of US president Lincoln’s first inaugural address. Pinker uses the phrase as a metaphor for four human motivations that, he writes, can “orient us away from violence and towards cooperation and altruism,“[2] namely: empathy, self-control, the “moral sense," and reason." - Wiki
