  • Hans Rosling spent his life not only understanding global health

  • and how things were improving,

  • but sharing that in this fun clear way.

  • When some people think about the world and its future they panic!

  • My name is Hans Rosling. I'm a statistician that no, no, no, no, don't switch off!

  • He would compare Sweden in the past with some of the poor countries today.

  • He would show very important insights about how things have changed

  • and that's culminated in this book called "Factfulness".

  • It's a collaboration between him and his son Ola, and daughter-in-law Anna.

  • He was always criticizing the word developed and developing,

  • but for the first time in this book he teaches you a categorization of four tiers

  • that is super helpful and associates it with things like tier one, no bike.

  • Tier two, bike. Tier three, some cars in the picture. Tier four, a lot of cars, too many cars.

  • You can actually call into your head a set of pictures

  • that Anna in particular has made about... Oh, that's your house,

  • that's your kitchen, that's your toilet. At those four levels of wealth and that helps you

  • understand that the average person is getting a lot wealthier

  • and he helps you frame whenever a plane falls out of the sky versus other deaths,

  • it gets ridiculously more coverage.

  • The things that cause that distortive effect of news,

  • he's putting it on to the individual to step back

  • and have a certain framework that helps you slot in the news.

  • This is one of the most educational books I've ever read.

  • It covers a space that it's not easy to go learn about.

  • The world would be better if literally millions of people read the book.

  • I give it my highest recommendation.
