Hans Rosling, Ulia Rosling Factfulness. Ten Reasons We're Wrong About The World — And Why Things Are Better Than You Think Book
Product description from producer
We tend to dramatize the life around us. What proportion of people in the world live in poverty? How many modern children have been vaccinated? How many years do girls from poor countries study? Information about these facts is constantly circulating around us, but even highly educated people respond to them incorrectly. University professors, journalists, experts, directors of multinational companies, and Nobel laureates often show poor results. Even chimpanzees, who would choose the answers randomly, do better. Moreover, mistakes tend to one direction - the world is scarier, more cruel and more hopeless than it really is. Obviously, the reason is not in awareness or intelligence. All this is irrational thinking and dramatic instincts that make people thicken paints.
