In The Daily Better, educator and author Henry Edwards takes readers on a tour of the bright side of the news. The upshot? The world has never been better.
The Daily Better gives readers a daily dose of evidence that the world is getting better. For every day of the year there’s a story about human progress, resilience and ingenuity. These daily vignettes dose the reader with good news.
Readers enjoy inspiring stories, reflect on positive changes in the world, and slowly change their worldview to include all the positives, all the progress, that makes the lives of many people so much better.
"READ IT. BETTER: LIVE IT."
“Henry Ford is often credited with the line, ‘Whether you think you can, or whether you think you cannot, you’re right.’ It’s one of my favorites. So’s Henry Edwards and his work — read it. Better: Live it.”

"GRATITUDE FOR PROGRESS IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH."
"This delightful idea-a-day tonic is animated by two ideas: Optimists are the true realists, and gratitude for progress is good for your mental health."
Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and the author of The Better Angels of Our Nature and Enlightenment Now
"GO MAKE MORE PROGRESS!"
"Every page provides a lesson in what people striving for a better, brighter world can achieve. It is a book that provides hope, but also marching orders: go make more progress!"
