Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World, and Why Things Are Better Than We Think, by Hans Rosling
If you’re ready for a little good news mixed in with your daily terror, then I can wholeheartedly recommend this book. Here’s a blurb from the jacket:
“It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think.That doesn’t mean there aren’t real concerns. 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 and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future.”
