Hans Rosling was famous and a TED Talk celebrity when he received the diagnosis of incurable pancreatic cancer, and told that he had less than a year to live. Rosling cancelled his scheduled lectures and began writing the book that would be the capstone of his career and his final appeal to all of us to “get the facts right.” Factfullness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World and Why Things Are Better Than You Think (Flatiron Books, 2018) is the subject of our study group. Rosling demonstrates that we frequently believe the world condition is different than facts show it actually is. He offers an explanation of why this happens and the ten instincts that distort our perspective and cause us to get things wrong. In the author’s words: “This is a book about why you (and almost everyone I have ever met) do not see the world as it really is and about what you can do about it and how this will make you feel more positive, less stressed and more hopeful.” Join us to learn some facts about what sometimes appears to be a fact-free world.
