Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts.

When asked simple questions about global trends - why the world's population is increasing; how many young women go to school; how many of us live in poverty - we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.
In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and a man who can make data sing, Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens, and reveals the ten instincts that distort our perspective.
It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most.
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.

Why are all the ebooks that you offer on populism, leftist/communist propaganda diatribes against reason and freedom. It seems as if the controllers of this site are hell-bent on guarding the cray pastiche of authoritarian-vulgarian tyranny that controls the USA and the EU. Never has any tyranny been defended by literally every business and all forms of communications. The creatures who control all those organizational weapons hate only one thing, free white people who control, by populism,their own nation. Our populist war must exist secretly and publicly in many forms of simultaneous demolition.

Bill, that’s really odd to think that way considering how much the book seems to talk about statistics in Asia and Africa to help them or seem to be in better shape than those in Europe and America — so much for white supremacy.
