INSTANTNEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "One of the most important books I've ever read--an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world." - Bill Gates "Hans Rosling tells the story of 'the secret silent miracle of human progress' as only he can. ButFactfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly."--Melinda Gates "Factfulness by Hans Rosling, an outstanding international public health expert, is a hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases." - Former U.S. President Barack Obama Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. When asked simple questions about global trends--what percentage of the world's population live in poverty; why the world's population is increasing; how many girls finish school--we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers. InFactfulness, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators, Anna and Ola, offersa radical new explanation of why this happens. They revealthe ten instincts that distort our perspective--from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version ofus andthem) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse). Our problem is that we don't know what we don't know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases. It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. That doesn't mean there aren't real concerns. 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,Factfulnessis an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future. --- "This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance...Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing.

I think it would be helpful, especially in the deeply divided US, for everyone to read this book. Rosling shows us how to work off of facts rather than our instincts-or biases. ( )

A great read for putting things in perspective, examining and understanding your own biases, and evaluating data. The book has 10 main sections that deal with particular thinking or analytical traps that many of us fall into. And a closer look at the data shows, as Dr. Rosling repeatedly states, that while there are things in the world that are “bad,” the world is getting better.

To be sure, Dr. Rosling is not saying the world is without problems that need to be fixed—global warming, terrorism, pandemics, and poverty, for example, are real problems that he says need to be addressed. But it’s essential to get accurate information, including about what progress has been made and how to address these problems in a way that avoids causing other problems.

Even where one disagrees with Dr. Rosling’s conclusions or perspective, he makes legitimate points. And that makes it possible to say, with Dr. Rosling, that the world has bad problems but is getting better; that we can—and should—be concerned about some things but we also need to keep our concerns and fears in perspective; and that examining and incorporating truth enables us to see the world more accurately and come up with better solutions to those problems.

Excellent discussion of the fallacies of poor critical thinking and the incomplete / inaccurate / catastrophizing nature of media headlines and so called 'journalism'. ( )
1 vote LapsusCalami | Aug 3, 2021 |
As the title suggests, in Factfulness, author Hans Rosling examines ten topics and argues that most of us have unduly pessimistic views about them. He suggests some reasons for this (eg news focusses on exceptional incidents, not uneventful successes, or our tendency to like simplistic or binary thinking), and looks at ways in which we might avoid the trap of always believing the worst.

The book is written in a chatty style and easy to read. For my tastes, I'd have preferred less emphasis on anecdotes and more on discussion. Personal stories are a good way of engaging an audience in a live talk, but when written down they run the risk of coming across as self-indulgent.

Overall, an interesting read with some takeaways to mull over.
