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.

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.
LESEN!!!

Ein Muss

Sollte jeder Mensch gehört haben, ich bin darauf gekommen weil ein ausführlicher Kommentar so gelautet hat. Und ich kann mich nur aus tiefstem Herzen anschließen. Einfach wow.

sachlich nüchtern und mitreißend zugleich

dieses Buch enthält nicht nur viele überraschende und wichtige Fakten, sondern auch gute Erklärungen dafür warum wir die Welt so unvollständig und verzerrt wahrnehmen. und welche Haltung dagegen hilft. Also auch ein gutes Stück Selbsterkenntnis.

Lesen! Wichtig!

Den eigenen Kindern vermitteln und selbst anwenden! Hinter die gängigen Klischees schauen erfordert Aufwand ist aber unerlässlich.

Best Book of my Year

Beautiful written, based on well researched facts, underlined with a positive view of the world and a vision for our future, not neglecting the serious problems and challenges, but calm and focused looking at the work ahead of us. This books opens up a truthfully and honest view of the world which I can bear and work with, not loosing sight and hope. This is what this source makes it so diffrent from all the other sources I have to learn about the current state of the world.

Gives me hope and balance

I like how this book really gives a healthy perspective on the world and they way it may well turn out in the next few decades. Thank you, Hans, Ola and Anna. Also, Simon Slater did a brilliant job of narrating this book, his calm and professional reading style fits this book perfectly.
