Kad tiek uzdoti jautājumi par tādām tēmām kā pasaules populācijas pieaugumu, to, cik daudz jaunu sieviešu apmeklē skolu, cik daudzi no mums dzīvo nabadzībā, mēs sistemātiski atbildam nepareizi. Tik nepareizi, ka pat šimpanze, izvēloties atbildes kā krievu ruletē, pārspētu žurnālistus, Nobela prēmijas laureātus un ivestīciju banķierus. Grāmatas autors piedāvā pilnīgi jaunu skatījumu, kāpēc tā notiek, un atklāj desmit instinktus, kas izkropļo mūsu perspektīvu. Izrādās, ka pasaule ar visām tās nepilnībām ir daudz labāka, nekā mēs domājam. Taču, ja mēs visu laiku par visu raizēsimies tā vietā, lai balstītu savu skatījumu uz faktiem, varam zaudēt spēju fokusēties uz to, kas apdraud mūs visvairāk. Iedvesmojoša un ankedotisku gadījumu, aizraujošu stāstu pilna grāmata ļaus mainīt veidu, kā mēs redzam pasauli.'a hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases'. BARACK OBAMA*the #1 Sunday Times bestseller * instant New York Times bestseller * an Observer 'best brainy book of the decade' * #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller * Irish Times bestseller * Audio bestseller * Guardian bestseller * ---Longlisted for the 2018 Financial Times/McKinsey Business Book of the Year---'One of the most important books I've ever read - an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.' BILL GATES'Hans Rosling tells the story of "the secret silent miracle of human progress" as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly.' MELINDA GATES Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. When asked simple questions about global trends - why the world's population is increasing; how many young women go to school; how many of us live in poverty - we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers. In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and a man who can make data sing, Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens, and reveals the ten instincts that distort our perspective. It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most. Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world.
