APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Poverty is down, life expectancy is up and—surprise!—the world is a much brighter place than we think. That’s the core tenet of Factfulness, a masterful recalibration of global misconceptions from breakout TED speaker Hans Rosling, a medical doctor and renowned international health professor. Using clear-eyed reasoning, anecdotal support and “data as therapy”, Rosling shows how we’ve let fear, overgeneralisations, and impatience blind us to major leaps in human progress. Factfulness is a crucial lesson for confusing times, reminding us that the path ahead lies not in panic but in clear thinking.
What an outstanding book. It challenged my thinking again and again. I love the way it cuts through today’s sensationalism and replaces it with cool and not-so-scary facts. Excellent and highly recommended!
For younger audience
