I originally decided to read Factfulness because it came highly recommended on gatesnotes.com but I passed it up for a few other titles as I hadn’t quite grasped the level of my naivety.

Factfulness is an excellent read that outlines a lot of commonly misunderstood and misconstrued notions about the world and how we think about it economically, socially and technologically, and I finished the book with a heavy sense of optimism and hope about how things are and where they’re going.
