Factfulness (2018) provides readers with a plethora of statistics and cold, hard facts that show the world is a lot better place than it was just a few generations ago. However, more than that, author Hans Rosling provides readers a technique to update their thinking and combat our natural tendency to dwell on the negative and lose sight of the positive.
"Hans Rosling was a well-known public educator who worked to enlighten people all around the world. He leveraged his decades of expertise as a medical doctor and public health professor to deliver relevant knowledge on and answers to today's concerns, particularly in low-income neighborhoods. Rosling gave immensely successful TED Talks before his death in 2017 and was named by Time magazine as one of the world's most influential persons.
Hans Rosling's son and daughter-in-law are Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Ronnlund.
They are also co-founders of the Gapminder Foundation, which is committed to creating visualizations and leveraging cutting-edge technology to make statistics and data easier to understand."
