We will be discussing an amazing book at one of the most beautiful libraries in London.

'Factfulness' (by Hans Rosling) -The book is divided into 11 chapters: 10 that talk about some of our instincts that distort our perspectives (such as negativity, fear, generalization, single perspective and more) and one that talks about factfulness in practice.

Hans Rosling (with Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Rönnlund) starts the book by saying that his mission was to fight devastating ignorance with a fact-based worldview. His Ted talks have been seen watched by millions of people.

In a period where we may get a bit frustrated about the world politics, this book is said to give a good perspective on human progress.
