You'll find not really a review but a prepublication blurb for Pinker's 
latest book in Tuesday's NY Times at:
 
http://www.nytimes.com/2002/09/17/science/social/17PINK.html?pagewanted=all&position=top
 
and a related sidebar at:
 
http://www.nytimes.com/2002/09/17/science/17BPINK.html
 
So far as I can make out from this account, the book isn't truly about 
linguistics other than to broaden and justify the case for innatism 
by making it appear equally valid for many other fields.  Specious & 
obfuscative, I'd say.

very best!
