Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World - and Why Things Are Better Than You Think
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
Magda, 15 april 2018
Alla borde läsa den här boken som kommer med flera tydliga exempel som synar flera av mekanismerna bakom våra tankefel som förvrider vår världsbild. Berättarstilen har en lättläst och idiotsäker logik!
Dels en bok för flera viktiga aha-upplevser men desto viktigare ger den grogrund för att helt ändra vårt tankesätt kring information, som jag vill påstå att alla i samhället i större eller mindre mån behöver!

A wonderful guide to an improving world, as well as being a well-stocked source of sound advice as to how to think about factual and statistical claims . . . The book is a pleasure to read - simple, clear, memorable writing - and when you've finished you'll be a lot wiser about the world. You'll also feel rather happier . . . "Factfulness" - the relaxing peace of mind you get when you have a clearer view of how the world really is . . . I strongly recommend this book. * Tim Harford * I had very high expectations; the book exceeded them. Superb guide to the world and how to be wiser about it. Great storytelling. An inspiration. * Tim Harford * Factfulness is a fabulous read, succinct and lively. It asks why so many people - including Nobel laureates and medical researchers - get the numbers so wrong on pressing issues such as poverty, pandemics and climate change... a just tribute to this book and the man would be a global day of celebration for facts about our world. * Nature * Wonderful... a passionate and erudite message that is all more moving because it comes from beyond the grave... His knack for presentation and delight in statistics come across on every page. Who else would choose a chart of "guitars per capita" as a proxy for human progress? * Financial Times *
