BBC RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK

The moving, playful memoir of Hans Rosling - Swedish statistics mastermind, researcher extraordinaire and author of the global bestseller, Factfulness.

This is a book that contains very few numbers. Instead, it is about meeting people who have opened my eyes.

It was facts that helped him explain how the world works. But it was curiosity and commitment that made the late Hans Rosling, author of worldwide bestseller Factfulness, the most popular researcher of our time.

How I Learned to Understand the World is Hans Rosling's own story of how a young scientist learned became a revolutionary thinker, and takes us from the swelter of an emergency clinic in Mozambique, to the World Economic Forum at Davos.

In collaboration with Swedish journalist Fanny Hargestam, Hans Rosling wrote his memoir with the same joy of storytelling that made a whole world listen when he spoke.

«<b>SELECT PRAISE FOR <i>FACTFULNESS: </i></b>'A hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases.' Barack Obama<b><i></i></b>»

«A light-hearted but data-rich book, calibrates our view of the world and explains how our cognitive processes can lead us astray»

, New Statesman, The best books of 2018

«Wonderful . . . a passionate and erudite message that is all the more moving because it comes from beyond the grave . . . His knack for presentation and delight in statistics come across on every page. Who else would choose a chart of "guitars per capita" as a proxy for human progress?»

Financial Times

«A powerful antidote to pervasive pessimism and populist untruths.»

, Observer, Book of the Year

«One of the most important books I've ever read - an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.»
