Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World–and Why Things Are Better Than You Think

I do want to share how this book was written. The author a well-renowned medical doctor and a global health educator with a well-known TED talk. When he was diagnosed with an incurable pancreatic cancer, he canceled his external engagements and focused on pouring his knowledge into this book. This book is his final gift to the world to make sense of the world around us amidst the noise and to create impact with the knowledge.

Every day, We are bombarded with information too general and simplistic. This book was spoken from the author’s voice and was an easy read. Each chapter demystifies each of our instincts and shares with us stories and rules to test our assumptions. He gives us tools at the end of each chapter of how we can think like a true data scientist.

With this book, we can see that the world is not as bad as it seems, “and we can see what we have to do to keep making it better.”
