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.
Life Changing Book
I read a lot. But it is rare that I read somehting I truly qualify as life chaning. This book completly shifted my worldview for the better. The author’s insight and knowledge ae well as personality are what makes the best in humanity. I highly recommend you read this book, epsecially if you want to cultivate a fact-based worldview and enrich your life and the lives of others.
A book for the curious mind. It makes an interesting read, full of examples to underline the often unique principles needed to make decisions based on facts. A must for decision making.
Incredible; everyone should read.
So clearly communicated, so dearly important. RIP A HERO
