International health specialist Hans Rosling and his collaborators set out to disprove common misconceptions about the state of the world and to show that the data proves things are, in fact, better than we think. Narrator Richard Harries presents a well-articulated, informative rendering of this approachable work, complementing Rosling's clear prose. With deliberate pacing that allows for the absorption of the fact-rich material, Harries guides listeners through Rosling's examination of widely held negative beliefs. Harries's narration enhances Rosling's strategies for combating the instinct to form negative impressions by looking at the data and seeing the big picture rather than conforming to the human tendency to adhere to our biases.
