Factfulness by Hans Rosling

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 people around the world are living in poverty; why the global 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 journalists, Nobel laureates and investment bankers.

In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with this two long-time collaborators Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens, and reveals the ten instincts that distort our perspective.

It turns out that the world, for all its imperceptions, is in a much better state than we might think. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a world view based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most.

Inspring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world.

Hans Rosling was a medical doctor, professor of international health, and renowned public educator. He was an adviser to the World Health Organisation and UNICEF, and he co-founded Médecins Sans Frontirèes in Sweden and the Gapminder Foundation. His TED talks have been viewed more than thirty-five million times, and he was listed as one of Time Magazine’s one hundred most influential people in the world. Hans died in 2017, having devoted the last years of this life to writing this book.

Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Rönnlund, Han’s son and daughter-in-law, are co-founders of the Gapminder Foundation, and Ola its director from 2005 to 2007 and from 2010 to the present day. After Google acquired Trendalyzer, the bubblechart tool invented and designed by Anna and Ola, Ola became head of Google’s Public Data Team and Anna became the team’s senior user-experience (UX) designer. They have both received international awards for their work.
