"FactFulness" by Dr. Hans Rosling


The above link will take you to a site that illustrates numerous peoples' incomes, homes and compares families of the world. He does this showing income and pictorial living conditions all designed and created by Dr. Hans Rosling who wrote "FactFulness" a book that gives us 'Ten Reasons why we're wrong about the world--and why things are better than you think.'
I have finished this amazing read and will give it to Greg; after that please ask me for it. In this astounding book Rosling asks us to take a survey of 13 questions about our world and all of its people:

  1. How many girls finish primary school?
  2. Where does the majority of the world population live?
  3. What is the life expectancy of the world today?
  4. We have 2,000,000,00 children 0-15 in our world in 2018. How many will we have in 2100?              These 4 and 9 others make up the survey taken by people from all walks of life: 'medical students, teachers, scientists, bankers, journalists, activists and even senior political decision makers.'

I took the test and scored 1 correct and 12 incorrect. Dr. Rosling is quick to point out that this result was consistent with the other results. Therein rests the reason his book had to be written.
I'm not secretly selling Amazon: just making it easier for you. Click the link below; it's yours for a small sum of money; something many billions of people have never had but Dr. Rosling's proven factful book gives reasons for rejoicing.

Dr. Rosling died in 2017. His daughter and son finished his book in 2018.
