Book Club: Factfulness by Hans Rosling

We’re currently reading this  mind-blowing and very positive book, finding out why things are better than we thought. Even taking the quiz at the start of the book was an eye-opener!

Endorsed by Bill Gates, the book explains the huge differences between how people think the world is (pretty bad) and how it actually is (not too bad really, and much better than it used to be).

Facts like the proportion of people living in extreme poverty halved in the last 20 years are certainly good news, and a welcome balance to the contact stream of bad news we see in the press every day.

So if you need a bit of a boost, buy here, or read more Parklife Book Club recommendations here.
