比爾‧蓋茲大力推薦 


現實比你想像的更美好:國際衛生學教授漢斯‧羅斯林以數據統計剖析,解釋現實世界正在逐漸好轉

屏除二分法的偏見,拆除心中的分歧之牆,客觀思考以理性的邏輯看待事實
《星期日泰晤士報》暢銷冠軍

「我人生中閱讀過最重要的作品之一,帶領你清晰正視世界的不二指南。」─比爾‧蓋茲

以幾個最簡單的問題談論全球趨勢─為什麼全球的環境汙染逐漸擴張;全世界有多少年輕女性擁有學習的機會;有多少人們活在貧困生活中─我們希望獲得正確觀察,但事實上,對於這些問題的答案我們卻一再得到錯誤的結論,甚至錯的離譜,連黑猩猩隨機選擇的答案,都比記者、諾貝爾獎得主和投資銀行家還要正確。

國際衛生學教授漢斯‧羅斯林與他長期合作的研究夥伴Anna和Ola,透過《現實比你想像的更美好》一書為這些錯誤的答案提供更合理的解答,揭露十大扭曲人們看待事實的本能習慣。書中認為很多人的分歧點,來自於彼此自以為是的直覺和假設,如果我們能夠瞭解並選擇正視,心中的「分歧之牆」就能被拆除,而人們不應被自我無意識的偏見影響,而是選擇及學習看清事實。

這是已故作家漢斯‧羅斯林教授生前最重要的著作,以最後的努力幫助人們理解世界各領域都在逐漸改善,提供明確、可執行的建議,克服心中的偏見,透過事實層面看待世界。 




INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

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

"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." --Melinda Gates

"Factfulness by Hans Rosling, an outstanding international public health expert, is a hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases." - Former U.S. President Barack Obama

Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts.

When asked simple questions about global trends--what percentage of the world's population live in poverty; why the world's population is increasing; how many girls finish school--we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.

In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators, Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens. They reveal the ten instincts that distort our perspective--from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse).

Our problem is that we don't know what we don't know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases.

It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. That doesn't mean there aren't real concerns. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most.

Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future.

"This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance...Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing. It wasn't enough. But I hope this book will be." Hans Rosling, February 2017.
