Before you begin take Gapminder test pressing on the following link that is foundational to the book here:


Author: Hans Rosling
Title: Factfulness Ten reasons we’re wrong about the World – and why things are better than you think

Summary in one paragraph: At times controversial book about sociological biases. How people for evolutionary and environmental reasons seem to react more to negatives and less to positives.

Even though the book delivers several good tools for analyzing different phenomena I constantly felt during the time reading that points made are a bit too one-sided leaving out many counterarguments that could also have a fair point against claims made.

Who should read: Someone who tends to be regularly too fixed in taking standpoints and someone who has sceptically driven and reactive Worldview.

Rating: 8/10
