    As a philosophy major (yes, we still exist), I learned that it is not enough to simply feel in your bones that something is good or right. You must be able to back it up with a compelling argument: a substantive succession of arguments. Within this book, geared to people who do not necessarily have a background in philosophy, Neiman creates a foundation for optimists to build upon . . . and then hopefully expand upon in daily life. This is a true antidote to skepticism: the great pull we all feel to give up and give in to the negative forces at work in our world.
