Finished reading: Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About The World - And Why Things Are Better Than You Think by Hans Rosling 📚
Really enjoyed this book which caused me to rethink some of my preconceptions about the world we live in, but more importantly, encouraged me to think more about how I see it.
Factfulness is an wonderfully well written and referenced book, and provides a balance between seeing the world as it is, not as we think it is. It is in fact how we see the world that is often the bigger problem.
The authors don’t try to paint a rose-coloured picture of the world, but encourage a view that is less binary (‘us’ and ‘them’) and more built along a continuum. The book presents a good argument for having an enquiring mind and well-developed critical thinking skills.
Take the Factfulness Quiz. If the results intrigue you, perhaps read the book!
I’d be interested to hear the thoughts of others who have read Factfulness.
