A review of


Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World – and Why Things Are Better Than You Think

A Better World

by David Meyer

Hans Rosling, co-founder of Doctors Without Borders, and his coauthors prove that today's world is more benign than you would believe.


The phrase “reality check” usually implies dashing hope with cold water, but physician and professor Hans Rosling — co-founder of Doctors Without Borders — and his son and daughter-in-law, Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Rönnlund, believe the world is a safer and more hopeful place than most people think. Throughout the book, the authors’ playful manner brings their statistics to life.
