Factfulness

Rosling, Hans

  8 Reviews

Concerned about the state of the world? Despairing about how little progress has been made? Despondent when you consider what needs to be done? The antidote to all this gloom and doom is within your grasp ... subtitled 'ten reasons we're wrong about the world - and why things are better than you think'. Factfulness offers a fascinating analysis of world statistical information, and provides a new framework for understanding it.

Tempering facts and figures with humour and anecdotes, it will add a pep to your step while challenging your preconceptions. [Small font]

Overall a book enjoyed by most of us, well-written and easy to understand, demystifying statistics. We liked the positivity of it but the challenges for the world are still there - scary how predictions are playing out.

A great book everyone should read! We had a great discussion over this book. Quite a revelation being confronted with such good news about our world. Well presented facts and some good humour. When income and consumerism become categories for dividing humanity, the resultant environmental degradation and economic growth dynamic need to be factored into the optimistic equation.

We had a great discussion and some of us feel a lot more optimistic about the world. We wondered how things with Covid 19 have changed though. We didn't appreciate being compared to chimpanzees - bordering on arrogance.

Elicted a mountain of discussion within the group. This book, taken in small bites, is a keeper!
