Description

There a lot of global trends that, when even the most highly educated people around the world are asked about, are conceived more negatively than it actually is and even chimpanzees will guess more correctly than them.

Hans Rosling, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon, wrote Factfulness along with his son, Ola Rosling, and daughter-in-law, Anna Rosling Rönnlund—together, they share the reasons to why we distort our worldviews as more negatively than in reality. With ten misconceptions or instincts, they show how our divided ideas (separating us from them), our influence from the media (telling us what to fear), and our perception of progress (seeing how things are getting worse than better) can hinder us from actually making a positive impact.
