Quick Review: Factfulness; Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World - and why Things Are Better Than You Think


This is without a doubt, one of the best books I have ever read in my life. If not one of the most important books I think everyone on this planet should read. It's partially about realizing the world is a better place than we think or are presented with. It's partially about how there are big things we must tackle and solve. It's mostly about how to see the world, data, and messages so as to make clearer more informed decisions. It's about data, the importance of the right data, and our feelings. How to reconcile the gap between our feelings about the world and a clearer picture of what truth may be. It's about thinking instead of being led. Looking at things from multiple perspectives - including ones we do not agree with to find out why we differ - including the perspective or lens we have built in our lives, which we use to see the world, our community, our companies, and our families. Anais Nin said something I think is so appropriate, "we do not see the world as it is, we see it as we are."
