Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World–and Why Things Are Better Than You Think by Hans Rosling, Anna Rosling Rönnlund, Ola Rosling

Facts about the world should inform your view, and they'll reveal a world that's less dramatic and more positive than we think.

A breath of positive, no-nonsense fresh air in our current political and social climate. This isn't just a book about how some people are ignoring facts, but a surprising look at how we all are. Refreshing also because the author encourages skepticism and not taking his word for anything. I wish I'd read this sooner, as there's some deeply important and fundamental stuff to consider that will certainly challenge and reshape my worldview.
