“Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World—and Why Things Are Better Than You Think” is a book written by Hans Rosling, along with his son Ola Rosling and daughter-in-law Anna Rosling Rönnlund. It was published in 2018.

In “Factfulness,” the authors challenge common misconceptions and negative biases about the state of the world. They argue that many people have an outdated and pessimistic view of global trends, often influenced by outdated statistics or media narratives that focus on negative events. The book aims to provide a more fact-based and optimistic perspective on the world.

Hans Rosling, a Swedish physician and statistician, presents ten “instincts” that lead people to misunderstand the world, such as the instinct to divide the world into “us vs. them” or the instinct to fear catastrophic risks. Through engaging stories, data, and visuals, the authors demonstrate that global progress has been significant in areas such as health, education, poverty reduction, and quality of life.

“Factfulness” encourages readers to develop a more nuanced and accurate understanding of the world by examining data and embracing a fact-based worldview. It highlights the importance of critical thinking, updating knowledge, and avoiding common cognitive biases.

The book received positive reviews for its engaging and accessible style, as well as its hopeful message. It has been praised for challenging preconceived notions and promoting a more informed and positive outlook on global issues.
