Ten Global Trends Every Smart Person Should Know: And Many Others You Will Find Interesting, released in August, compiles these facts and accompanying charts in a beautifully illustrated volume suitable for display on your coffee table or in your office. The first printing of the book has already sold out as a result of large orders for use as holiday gifts for friends and clients. A second printing is now in stock.
As Tupy explains, “Well‐known negativity biases that are deeply entrenched in the human psyche, and which we discuss in the introduction, conspire to make us think of the world as being in much worse shape than it is. So, the primary goal of the book is educational. If readers walk away feeling a sense of pride over the degree and scope of human accomplishment and imbued with a sense of rational optimism about our species’ future, so much the better.”
