Read of the Month(Jan 2021)

 With all that is happening at the moment;-

  • the pandemic (insufficient information)
  • the riot in the States (conspiracy theories) 
knowing a source that collects information and data from a variety of sources and then analyses it carefully is an essential antidote.

As it says on the dust jacket 
"...carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts"
greatly reduces anxiety, worry and stress. 

The tag line of the book is hugely encouraging
"Ten reasons we're wrong about the world and why things are better than you think"

What is the book?
The title is simply

Hans Rosling

This is a book can be read many times.
As the title suggests it gathers facts and then orders them logically and systematically to clarify thinking. 

In order to continue to examine facts and inform people, the author, 
who is Swedish, set up the organization "Gapfinder".
As they state this is 
"an independent Swedish foundation with no
  • political
  • religious
  • economic

Its mission is
"to fight devastating ignorance with a fact-based world view".

The author is now dead but his son Ola Rosling and daughter-in-law Anna continue his work.

This is a book I would suggest everyone read.
