Bookey App 30 mins Book Summaries Knowledge Notes and More

Before we begin, let’s first consider a key question to understand this book. Do you think the world is going to get better or worse in the future? After years of research, the authors of this book have found that most people believe that our world is heading towards a negative path that will worsen in the upcoming year. If you ask them why such a negative perspective of the future, many will most likely cite the endless negative news about the destructions caused by environmental pollution, violent crimes, plane crashes, road accidents, new diseases as evidence that a darker future is on the way.However, to answer this question from a clear perspective, it is necessary to look at factual data and understand the truth behind it. We will learn how to do it in this book.

Anna Rosling Rönnlund, co-author of New York Times-bestseller, Factfulness, talks about how these biases impede our ability to develop a fact-based worldview.

Anna Rosling Rönnlund: Factfulness

UNSW Centre for Ideas

Asking big questions about the world is easy. How many people live below the poverty line? How many girls go to school? Why is the global population increasing? How much money do you need to live a happy life?But answering them ‘factfully’ is hard. So hard in fact, that because of our internal biases we get them wrong more often than not.In their new book Factfulness, the late, great Professor Hans Rosling, together with his son and daughter-in-law Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Rönnlund offer a radical new explanation of why we so often make these mistakes. Anna will reveal the 10 instincts that distort our perspective and outline why when we think about the world, we need to stop considering our feelings and start considering the facts.
