Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About The World – And Why Things Are Better

£9.99

When you ask people simple questions about global trends, they systematically get the answers wrong. How many young women go to school? What’s the average life expectancy across the world? What will the global population will be in 2050? Do the majority of people live in rich or poor countries? In ‘Factfulness,’ Hans Rosling and his two lifelong collaborators, Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling-RΓΆnnlund, show why this happens. Based on a lifetime’s work promoting a fact-based worldview, they reveal the ten dramatic instincts, and the key preconceptions, that lead to us consistently misunderstanding how the world really works. Inspiring and revelatory, ‘Factfulness’ is a book of stories by a late legend, for anyone who wants to really understand the world.
