In a world where we believe things that have no factual basis, Hans Rosling realized a purpose in which sharing “factfulness” is a way for us to understand and appreciate a life lived with facts in mind. Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong about the World – and Why Things are Better than You Think challenges our outdated notion that the world is worse off today compared to the past. Along with Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Rönnlund, Han Rosling created this book to give us a new perspective on how we think and live today.
You will be challenged from the moment the book opens by sharing a simple quiz that will show you how you actually view the world today. Majority of people gain scores of 2 points on an average—simply making you realize how having an “overdramatic worldview” can actually be harmful. Rosling turns to facts and data presenting how, in reality, the world is becoming better and better each year. He challenges the misconceptions and outdated ideologies we have which we can change to improve our daily lives.
The book, in itself, will make you realize how fighting the outdated instincts you have can make you a better decision maker, improve your perspective on things and others, and see the reality that the world is actually much better than it has ever been.
There are a number of questions which can make you see how what your perspective is in the reality of the world. Rosling shared these question that he had also given to people of varying backgrounds and educational levels around the world. Find the original quiz here:http://forms.gapminder.org/s3/test-2018.
