Win copies of FACTFULNESS for your reading group

Factfulness

This book will change the way you see the world. Fact.

When asked simple questions about global trends – why the world’s population is increasing; how many young women go to school; how many of us live in poverty – we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers.

In Factfulness, Professor of International Health Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens.

It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. 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…

We are giving away sets of ten copies of Factfulness to ten reading groups. For the chance to read this eye-opening bestseller and win a set for your group, simply tell us by the 5th of May about your reading group, why you would love to get your hands on a copy, and if you would be happy to review this title for us.

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.

‘One of the most important books I’ve ever read – an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.’ BILL GATES

Hive and The Reading Agency

The Reading Agency loves books, in every form, and we know you do too. We love it when people borrow books in every format from their brilliant local libraries. We love it when reading groups get exclusive free proofs from our publisher partners. We love it when readers pick up a pre-loved book from a second-hand bookshop for a song. And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
