事实 | Factfulness by Hans Rosling,  Ola Rosling, Anna Rosling Rönnlund

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.

避免情绪化决策,认识情绪化本能,作出相应改变,摆脱非理性的困扰,重新把能量投入建设性的行为中。

避免一分为二:如今不应再把世界分为发达国家和发展中国家。大部分国家都是中等收入国家,而这种传统分类方式很容易让你在现代社会痛失潜在市场;

避免以偏概全:在一些城市街头,你会看到很多盖到一半的房子。很容易认为这是因为盖房子的人失去了资金支持,或是做事毫无计划。其实这是房子主人储存财富的聪明办法;

避免单一视角:美国人均卫生支出名列世界第一。然而美国并非全球最长寿的国家。美国的平均预期寿命只排在第40位;

避免情急生乱:“你必须现在就行动,否则就来不及了!”这句话只会带来压力和焦虑。绝大多数情况下,我们并不需要立即采取行动,以后仍然会有机会。

一旦你拥有了《事实》提供的思维方式,你就能:远离焦虑、变得乐观、充满希望、变得理性、发现潜在的商机、作出有效决策。
