Publisher's Summary

In the book Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World and Why Things Are Better Than You Think by Hans Rosling manages to achieve the unexpected and completely alter the way in which we view the world.

What exactly is "factfulness?"

Factfulness is a new thinking habit that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to challenges and opportunities of the future. It is the stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. Like a healthy diet and regular exercise, it can and should become part of people’s daily lives. Start to practice it, and you will make better decisions, stay alert to real dangers and possibilities, and avoid being constantly stressed about the wrong things. Learn how to fight your own personal bias, and get a more realistic perspective on the world around you.

Factfulness will make you better understand the world we live in.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a book summary of Factfulness by Hans Rosling and not the original book.

It takes the average person 58.5 minutes to read 10,000 words. For the price of a coffee and a time investment of roughly two percen of your day, I believe the wisdom in this book to be well worth it's value. This book allows you to skip to the nuggets of wisdom and actionable content in a very easily absorbed, accessible way including key takeaways at the end of each chapter. This book summarizes the original in detail, to help people effectively understand, articulate, and imbibe the original work by Rosling. This book is not meant to replace the original book but to serve as a companion to it.

Great audio book!

I did pretty good on the initial test covering the current state of the world. However, I had a lot to learn about why we have difficulty believing the world is getting better. Great audio book!

Highly recommended!

Few books leave you dumbfounded on your own ignorance. Factfulness does, and sparks you with fact based hope without ungrounded positivity.
