Immer schön misstrauisch bleiben, vor allem bei vermeintlich "einfachen" Sachlagen und Lösungen...

As a non-fiction read, this was interesting and informative. I especially liked the suggestions of how I can think more critically about the information that is fed to me about the state of the world. The illustrating examples the authors used were entertaining and got me thinking.

This is a must read for just about everybody. If you're depressed about the state of the world, this book will help you see how much progress HAS been made (yes, there's still more to be made). If you want to take action to make the world better, this book has some steps you can take to do that. If you want to learn to think critically, this book will give you some tips and pointers on how to do that.

Just a very well written book peppered with personal anecdotes from Dr. Rosling as well as plenty of facts and figures.… (more)
