Feeling like things are worse than ever before? That the world is spinning out of control on its axis? Our economy is woeful, kids have no respect and politics is a joke. Life is as tough as it could be. Or is it? Best. Times. Ever. explains why almost everything is far better than it used to be, and is an optimistic answer to those who say that everything is getting worse. With conflicts around the globe, rampant environmental damage, economic struggles, poverty, and the ongoing threat of terrorism, the world isn't perfect right now. But is everything really going to hell in a handbasket? Should we really be feeling so miserable? This book concisely goes through 100 things that we currently complain about, and explains why - believe it or not - things aren't as bad as they used to be. In fact, we're actually improving! From the serious (the number of people dying in wars is 2,000 a year; in the 1950s, it was 65,000 a year) to the frivolous ("Vertigo" had bad reviews in 1957, was considered a cinema classic by 1987, and was recently voted the greatest movie ever made - so even movies get better), this is an optimistic answer to those who say that everything is getting worse. There is definite room for improvement, but we're heading in the right direction...humorous, light reading, peppered with useful information and trivia.
