Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World—and Why Things Are Better Than You Think


Hans Rosling with Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Rönnlund

One of the most important books I’ve ever read—an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.Bill Gates
Hans Rosling tells the story of ‘the secret silent miracle of human progress’ as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly.Melinda Gates
A hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases.Barack Obama

Inspiring 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 and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future.
