Factfulness is a fascinating book by Swedish statistician Hans Rosling (in collaboration with his son Ola Rosling and his daughter-in-law Anna Rosling Ronnlund) that will change the way you see the world forever. Rosling shows us that when asked simple questions about global trends like, what percentage of people around the world are living in poverty; why the global population is increasing, or; how many girls finish school, we systematically get the answers wrong. He shows us that his test subjects think the world is poorer, less healthy and more dangerous than it actually is. He recommends thinking about the world as being divided into four levels based on income brackets, instead of thinking about the world as either 'developed' or 'developing'. Factfulness is an inspiring and revelatory read, showing us that the world is, for all its imperfections, in a much better state than we think.
