Default Factfulness by Hans Rosling

Factfulness should be an enlightening and enjoyable read for anyone wishing peace, justice, and happiness for everyone in the world.

I might wish that Rosling had been a little more libertarian, leftists might prefer that he he was more socialist, but he stated that he wouldn't make a god out of either the free market or central planning.

Bill Gates called the book "One of the most important books I've ever read--an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world."

Melinda Gates said "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."

To me, Factfulness is not merely a good book, nor even a great book, but a wonderful book.
