    Description

    Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of carrying only opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. 

    When asked simple questions about global trends - why the world's population is increasing; how many young women go to school; how many of us live in poverty - we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers. 

    In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and a man who can make data sing, Hans Rosling, together with his two longtime collaborators Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens and reveals the 10 instincts that distort our perspective. 

    It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most. 

    Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Good but a lot of repetitions

    I think this book can be best appreciated not red in one go. It is very insightful and helps you understand the biased way our brain thinks and understands the world, but sometimes struggles to get to the point. Nevertheless, it's an amazing read that I strongly recommend!

    An ignorance killer

    This book is a mind opener. I always considered myself very curious abd open minded about the world. Especially that I come from a mix from a poor and rich country. However I was stunned to see how I was still full of stereotypes and misconceptions.

    What is very important with this book is that beyond the facts that are pulled, it gives very concrete structure for establishing truth based on facts rather than opinions based on instincts.

    Thank you very much for the writing that book!

    Awakening book

    This is one of the greatest books I have ever read. It wakes me up and make me more humble about my knowledge of the world and my analytical capability.

    It is well-written and the concepts are beautifully demonstrated.

    The most important part of the book is that it is based on real life experiences that the author himself lived while he traveled to different parts of the world.

    A masterpiece!

    Great content, better than I expected. The story was really good and I loved the examples from Hans life. It made the book more authentic.

    The narrator did a great job, and made the experience very pleasant.

    I can therefore recommend this book to everyone who want's to broaden there perspectives, become more sceptical, but in the same time, understand the world with a new set of eyes.

    A must read for everybody

    No matter how well informed you are Factfulness is a useful book. It is not only about facts but also about approaching the world with critical thinking even to contradict this book, I am sure Hans would not mind. I think that under all the modern noise, under all the fake news, all the manipulating politicians, a bit of factulness is exactly what the people need.

    An antidote to panic-driven worldviews

    I put this book in the same category as Pinker’s recent Enlightenment Now and the earlier Rational Optimist by Matt Ridley. The book provides a lot of facts about the world and how the world has changed over the last five decades, and the facts are indeed encouraging. Hans Rosling is careful to point out that he does not like being called an optimist because it insinuates some degree of naivety. Hans Rosling prefers to be called a realist, and I think – he sees the world as it is, including both problems and solutions. The fact that the world is getting better does not mean that it is perfect or that we can lean back and watch the show. However, it does mean that we are probably doing some things right and it is essential to identify those things so that we can keep doing them.

    Unfortunately, the media are terrible at identifying things that work in the world, and they are especially poor at identifying gradual improvements in the world. Rather the media feeds on a disaster, crime, panic, and drama and since a world with 7 billion people will always have enough drama for 30 minutes of news, then that is what the media focus on, and that is what people see. Giving the media all the blame is probably not fair. The media, after all, live in symbiosis with media consumers – they tend to show what people watch and people like to attend a drama. There has been peace in Sweden for 200 years, and guess what, no war broke out today either! Amazing! No, that is not news. So how can we get out of this eternal loop of increasingly gloomy worldviews in a world where progress has never been more evident. Well, reading this book is probably a step in the right direction.

    The books begin with some questions about the world. In low-income countries, how many girls finish primary school? Does the majority of the world population live in poor or middle-income countries? What is the life expectancy in the world today? What percentage of the world population are vaccinated today? People, because of their gloomy worldview, tend to get these questions completely wrong. Hans Rosling likes to compare the accuracy of different groups (including politicians and people working at the world bank who really ought to know the answer), to that of chimps. The chimps almost always outperform us because they don’t know anything about the world and therefore guess. But guessing turn out to be better than systematic pessimism, which seems to be the default among humans.

    In the remaining part of the book, Rosling revisits each of these questions and based on data from undisputed sources he explains why, in all except one case, the correct and is also the most favorable answer. Poverty is going down drastically. Most people in the world live in middle-income countries. The percentage of girls finishing primary school is almost the same as for boys etc. Intermingled with these more data-driven passages, Rosling includes personal anecdotes from his long career as a public health worker. These anecdotes are fascinating and add to the appeal of the book as well as to my admiration for Rosling.

    There are a few surprises in the book. One is Rosling’s claim (based on hard data), that progress does not depend on democracy. Countries such as South Korea, the home of LG, Samsung, Kia, etc., had enormous growth while it was still a military dictatorship. Only later has it become a well-functioning democracy. Rosling is also ambiguous when it comes to activists. He says that activists do drive changes, often in the right direction. However, he also argues that they are prone to exaggerations. Women’s activists, for example, tend to spread the news about how women suffer, but not about the progress such as the fact that girls today are almost as well educated as boys, globally speaking.

    For a book that is relatively short, Rosling has managed to include a great deal of data that I think every person in the world should know. Again, not so that we can pad our shoulder and call it a day, but rather so that we can identify what works and continue to do what works. The book is also an enjoyable read with a good flow and a nice mix of anecdotes and data to back up those anecdotes. I think that Bill Gates did a wise thing when he made this book available to all college graduates in the US, and I hope that all college graduates grasp their opportunity to read this excellent book!

    Spectacular and humbling

    It just completely demolished my world view. I became much more humble, yet strangely optimistic about the world. RIP Mr. Rossling. Your factfullness is here to stay with me.

    Amazing read. Both enjoyable and informative.

    Memorable moment: how wrong our stereotypes are. and whereas we may be aware and fighting with stereotypes advocated by others, we are not aware of how many stereotypes we advocate ourselves. this book uncovers it all. My best read of 2020.

    Recommended for anyone, specially data scientists

    The book is all about how we sistematically have a wrong view about the world, and how things are bad, but getting better. The author shows how we tend to see the world way more negatively than it actually is by sharing data, as well as sharing a few personal stories to illustrate how looking at the data makes us take better decisions.

    The point I disliked is that the chapters weren't named correctly on Audible, so the narrator might say "Chapter 5", while Audible shows you're in chapter 8.

    Essential reading

    Most of us think the world is getting worse, so we get depressed, blame others and vote for change. The rise of nationalist parties, populist leaders and events such as Brexit may have been averted if more of us had realised the truth: the world is gradually and steadily getting better. While there is still plenty to do and we need to act faster, we should be encouraged by our progress as it shows we can improve the world. So how do we avoid having the wrong view of the world and making the wrong choices going forward? We read This book and start to focus on real facts rather than the drama we absorb in the media.

    Das wohl wichtigstes Buch des Jahres, wenn nicht des Jahrhunderts

    Wenig hat mich in den letzten Jahren so beeindruckt, wie dieses Buch.
    Es öffnet die Augen für das Wesentliche und den wirklichen Zustand der Welt - fern ab von medialer Panikmache und subjektivem Jammern.

    Inspiring and eye-opening

    Incredible book! A fact-based world is the word we need in order to successfully face the big global challenges we are facing. I was tremendously inspired by Hans's story and lifelong dedication to making the world better.
    Pity about the narration, i found the actor's voice very bothering, cold and affected. Pronouncing the words with a lot of air( aaaiihhhhr) and bitterness. Hans was not speaking like that and all his discourses had warmth in the voice. Despite the narration i managed to finish the book, because the content was so fascinating.
    Will read it again in paper format!

    It’s comforting to read this book and realize that I haven’t lived completely blindly but it’s always pleasant to read books which remind us of how much we don’t know. I am curious what the recommender algorithm will make out of my review :)
