Factfulness: Diez razones por las que estamos equivocados sobre el mundo. Y por qué las cosas están mejor de lo que piensas. (Spanish Edition)
¿Qué porcentaje de la población global vive en la pobreza? ¿Cuántas niñas acaban la educación básica en los países pobres? ¿Cuál es actualmente la esperanza de vida en el mundo? La mayoría de personas responden incorrectamente a estas preguntas y a otras similares. ¿A qué se debe? Este libro explica por qué somos más pesimistas de lo que en realidad deberíamos ser dada la situación real de nuestro mundo. Hans Rosling, una eminencia del análisis y divulgación de tendencias globales, aﬁrma que tenemos diez instintos que distorsionan nuestra visión. Desde nuestra tendencia a dividir el mundo en dos campos (nosotros contra ellos) a la manera en que consumimos la información de los medios (basada en la explotación del miedo), pasando por el modo en que percibimos el progreso (creyendo que las cosas siempre empeoran). Nuestro problema es que no somos conscientes de lo que no sabemos, e incluso cuando estamos informados nos dejamos llevar por sesgos inconscientes y predecibles. Porque, pese a todas sus imperfecciones, la realidad económica y social del mundo es mucho mejor de lo que pensamos, lo cual no signiﬁca que no haya motivos para preocuparse ni cuestiones que requieran una mejora urgente. Quedan múltiples problemas por resolver, pero los datos nos indican que el mundo cada vez va mejor. Inspirador y revelador, lleno de anécdotas llamativas, datos reveladores e historias conmovedoras, Factfulness es un libro urgente y esencial que cambiará la manera en que ves el mundo y que te permitirá responder a las crisis y oportunidades futuras.

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER“One of the most important books I’ve ever read—an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.” – Bill Gates“Hans Rosling tells the story of ‘the secret silent miracle of human progress’ as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly.” —Melinda Gates"Factfulness by Hans Rosling, an outstanding international public health expert, is a hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases." - Former U.S. President Barack ObamaFactfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. 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. ---“This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance…Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing. It wasn’t enough. But I hope this book will be.” Hans Rosling, February 2017.

Cultivating the Mustard SeedYou probably already know a little about faithfulness—it’s obviously an important character trait in the Bible. But, while simple to understand, being a faithful friend, family member, or disciple can be a lot harder to develop. It not only requires time in the present to cultivate, but also affects the shape of our future—because the faithfulness that we show now determines the opportunities we’ll receive to show faithfulness later.Faithfulness is a critical pursuit for the Christian—but it often gets lost in the shuffle. We ask God to give us certain qualities and to change the way we are. . . but faithfulness is concerned with what we do! So how do we know whether we are faithful?Lou Priolo defines three key elements of faithfulness, then goes on both to outline three tests for measuring faithfulness and to pinpoint the greatest obstacles to faithfulness. Learn how to leave excuses behind and do what God has entrusted you to do!The Resources for Biblical Living booklet series addresses a wide range of practical life issues in a straightforward, down-to-earth, and most of all, biblical manner.“The people who make the greatest impact for Christ always have one thing in common. They’ve learned to be faithful. If you want to live all out for Christ, Lou Priolo will help you to see the importance of faithfulness, give you a clear explanation of what faithfulness looks like, motivate you to pursue faithfulness, and help you to know how to become more a faithful and fruitful person in your day-to-day life.”—Joshua Mack, Pastor-teacher of Living Hope Church, Pretoria, South AfricaLOU PRIOLO is the founder and president of Competent to Counsel International and is an instructor with Birmingham Theological Seminary. He has been a full-time biblical counselor since 1985 and is a fellow of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. Lou lives in Birmingham, Alabama, with his wife, Kim, and his daughters, Sophia and Gabriella.

Factfulness: Dieci ragioni per cui non capiamo il mondo. E perché le cose vanno meglio di come pensiamo. (Italian Edition)
Quali strumenti possiamo lasciare ai nostri figli per interpretare il mondo in perenne mutamento in cui viviamo? Come possiamo far fronte alla valanga quotidiana di notizie deprimenti che ci arriva dai media, dai social e dalla politica? Perché prestiamo più attenzione alle notizie negative, quelle che ci danno l'impressione che tutto stia lentamente, ma inesorabilmente, andando a rotoli? Di quali irragionevoli pregiudizi è vittima il nostro pensiero? Attraverso un attento studio dei dati, Hans Rosling, il "maestro Jedi dei dati", dimostra che le cose non stanno andando così male e che, anzi, siamo di fronte a un radicale miglioramento. Per capirlo dobbiamo però imparare a guardare ai fatti con curiosità, a metterli in prospettiva e a saperci stupire: basta pensare alla vita dei nostri nonni per accorgerci degli enormi passi avanti che stiamo facendo, in ogni campo. Per esempio, non ha più senso parlare di "mondo occidentale" e "mondo in via di sviluppo", aumentando il baratro tra noi e il resto del pianeta, quando ormai quasi tutti i Paesi stanno raggiungendo lo stesso livello in termini di istruzione, di opportunità e di crescita. Abbiamo tutti la possibilità di usare la forza dei fatti a nostro vantaggio, per capire e non lasciarci accecare dalla rabbia, dall'ignoranza, dalle semplificazioni. Grazie anche a storie ed esempi di una chiarezza disarmante, Rosling ci sprona a essere curiosi, ma non si limita a fare domande, ci risponde avvalendosi della verità dei fatti.
