Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World--and Why Things Are Better Than You Think by Hans Rosling | Conversation Starters Biases and distorted perspectives cause people to create divisions and antipathies between groups. They also distort the way we perceive information from the media. We don’t know that there are many things we are ignorant of. Our seemingly intelligent guesses are based on unconscious biases. It is because humans are naturally born to crave for drama and are easily deluded into making non-factual decisions. Hans Rosling shows us how to be factful and make intelligent decisions that will make us optimistic about the world’s future.
Rosling is renowned for his highly popular TED talks which have been viewed 35 million times. A Brief Look Inside:EVERY GOOD BOOK CONTAINS A WORLD FAR DEEPER than the surface of its pages.
