Inhaltsangabe

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.

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.

Super Buch!

Rosling schafft es mit packenden Beispielen und statistischer Evidenz gekonnt auf die verzerrte Wahrnehmung unserer Welt aufmerksam zu machen. Absolut Empfehlenswert!

This should be taught in schools

In my opinion, this book is an absolutely essential read for everyone trying to form opinions about the development of our societies and politics and would also like to avoid fallacies, fake news, and influencers with intent. This topic should be on our schools' curricula.

Höchst unterhaltsam die Welt neu kennen lernen

Hans Rosling und seinem Team gelingt es auf eine sehr angenehme Art und Weise darzustellen, dass sehr vieles was ich über die Welt zu glauben meinte, nicht den Fakten entspricht. Dabei hatte ich nie das Gefühl belehrt zu werden, sondern vielmehr die Welt buchstäblich mit neuen Augen zu sehen.

Convincing, well-structured & with concrete tipps

"Factfulness" presents a well-structured, convincing argument that does not only explain why our brains are so in love with the dramatic world view but also what concrete tools and techniques we can use to steer them towards a more accurate and less stressful fact-based one. I think that citing so many studies and pieces of information was a great choice and all diagrams etc. are described in a way that makes it easy to visualize them. However, I still found it very helpful to look at the pdf in between chapters to make sure I didn't miss anything and was delighted to find a summary of both the most important points and concrete tipps at the end of it.
