Фактологичность Десять причин наших заблуждений о мире – и почему все не так плохо, как кажется

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

Hans Rosling

"Фактологичность" — это рассказ о десяти самых частых ловушках, в которые попадает наш мозг, пытаясь оценить положение дел в мире, а также о том прогрессе, который мы привыкли не замечать, но который каждый день делает нашу жизнь лучше. Специалист по проблемам мирового здравоохранения, основатель шведского отделения "Врачей без границ", создатель проекта Gapminder, Ханс Рослинг неоднократно входил в список 100 самых влиятельных людей мира. Его книга "Фактологичность" — это попытка дать читателям с самым разным уровнем подготовки эффективный инструмент мышления в борьбе с новостной паникой. С помощью проверенной статистики и наглядных визуализаций Рослинг описывает ловушки, в которые попадает наш разум, и рассказывает, как в действительности сегодня обстоят дела с бедностью и болезнями, рождаемостью и смертностью, сохранением редких видов животных и глобальными климатическими изменениями.

Factfulness is one of the most educational books I’ve ever read.      источник
If you read only one book this year, may it be Hans, Anna and Ola Rosling’s Factfullness. Literally mindblowing in today’s world of distorted facts. Ten reasons, backed by examples and facts, on why the world is a better place than our brains might want to think. @OlaRosling      источник
Just finished this amazing, thoughtful & comforting book. I hope you’ll read it. Devastated to read the “outro” that Hans passed away before it was published. Somehow I didn’t know until the end.      источник
I recently finished reading "FACTFULLNESS" by Hans Rosling. Bill Gates says the book is, "One of the most important books I have ever read - an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world." I agree. In the Post-Truth world this book is a must read. 👇🏽      источник
If you haven't read the book, I very much recommend it. – Here is the book's site: – On Amazon it has been rated very well by 3,691 readers. For the Kindle it costs only $2.99      источник
@JustinWetherby Enjoy! Loved both of those books      источник
@gregsalterjhb yes, terrific book.      источник
These two books should be required reading in high school There is so much about the world that needs fixing, and those issues get their due attention But there are so many REMARKABLE improvements in the quality of human life, too The optimist framing is invaluable      источник

I read Factfullness. Anyone who doesn't know the facts in it should read it both for its optimistic take and the mental habits it encourages. But then you should extend those same habits to the many less positive facts omitted by the book. My review      источник
@cblatts @poverty_action - Factfulness by @HansRosling - Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe - Cry the Beloved Country by Alan Paton - Madam President by @helenecooper - Born a Crime by @Trevornoah All of these have excellent audio books, too.      источник
I just finished reading Factfulness — if you read just one non-fiction book this year, this should be it. A clear-headed, useful book on seeing the whole world more rationally. Plus it's hard to put down. And, the data viz is A++      источник
Unmasks a lot of misperceptions that people have about the state of the world.      источник
@jiim_pickett Good book      источник
Factfulness, by Hans Roslin is one of the most important books I’ve ever read. In a world of distorted facts, the frames this book gives you are a game-changer.      источник
"Cultures, nations religions, and people are not rocks. They are in constant transformation." Indeed - look to the East for inspiration. Thank you @DanLatimore for the #book recommendation. 🙏📚 @OlaRosling #Factfulness #reading #inspiration #humanity      источник
Factfulness - Book review NEVER assume; DON'T 'think'; ALWAYS know. My favourite principle so beautifully captured in this compact, easy-to-breeze-through, amazing book. Deeply detailed, well researched, Factfulness IS very factful. See pic for review      источник
