When asked about global trends—what percentage of the world's population live in poverty, can Europe sustain long-term immigration, how many girls finish school—we get the answers wrong, and even a chimp choosing at random will consistently outguess journalists, bankers, and Nobel laureates. Our problem is that even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases, suggests Hans Rosling. In this inspiring, illustrated book, Rosing dissects our tendency to divide the world into "us and them," our fear-based consumption of media, and how we perceive progress (or the lack of it). Looking at the actual data, it turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think.
