On a regular basis, we bring you stories about how bad things are. This time, we talk with the co-author of a new book that argues that the world is getting better at a rapid rate. Our guest will be science writer Steven Kotler.

Overall, he says, we are living in a better world, and the book looks at the forces responsible.
