Do you think you’re smarter than a chimpanzee?

Guess what…you’re not. Neither am I! But how?!

Hans Rosling, Ola Rosling, and Anna Rosling Rönnlund offer explanations as to why our worldview may not be as “on point” as we think. We all have instincts, stereotypes and even outdated information and education that create a worldview which may make things seem more negative, dyer, and distorted than we realize.

Swimming In a Sea of Data

Don’t worry, it’s not just you and it’s not just me. Factfulness helps us make sense of all the news headlines, the immense amounts of data, and helps us further focus on the things that really matter.  

If I could describe this book in one word, that word would be, “fundamental.” •
