FACTFULNESS: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong about the World—and Why Things are Better Than You Think

by Hans Rosling (with Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Ronnlund)

Most of us don’t see the world as it truly is, because we sift inputs through a mental filter that favors dramatic information. Generally, people believe that the world is getting worse, when facts and data show that the world is getting better.  An exaggerated and overly-negative view of the world creates unnecessary fear/stress, and results in poor decisions based on the wrong facts/impressions. This book helps us to understand the 10 dramatic instincts that distort our perspectives, and learn how to develop a fact-based worldview to reduce stress and improve our ability to make sound decisions.

In this summary, you’ll learn:
• To understand the 10 “dramatic instincts” that all human beings have, and how they create the wrong perceptions of the world around us;
• The facts and statistics of the true state of our world today, including poverty, education, health etc., and what it means for businesses and individuals;
How to recognize and manage the 10 dramatic instincts, so you can develop a more accurate, fact-based worldview, develop better solutions and make better decisions.
