Factfulness : ten reasons we're wrong about the world - and why things are better than you think

By: Rosling, HansContributor(s): Rosling, Ola | Ronnlund, Anna RoslingMaterial type: TextTextPublisher: London Sceptre 2018Description: 342pISBN: 9781473637467Subject(s): SOCIAL INTERACTION | SOCIAL PERCEPTIONDDC classification: 302 ROS Summary: In this book authors offers a radical new explanation of why we systematically get the answers wrong so wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers and why this happens. They reveal the ten instincts that distort our perspective—from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse). Our problem is that we don’t know what we don’t know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases.
