    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!!!

    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!

    I performed better than the chimps

    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 :)
