Bill Gates to Give the Book “Factfulness” to All Recent Grads

This marked the inaugural Commencement ceremony of the new Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University).

Recent graduates of Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University): Bill Gates has a gift for you.

He’s giving the book “Factfulness” to everyone who received a degree from a U.S. college or university this spring.

By the late global-health expert Hans Rosling, the book is packed with advice about how to see the world clearly, Gates said on his blog. “Although I think everyone should read it, it has especially useful insights for anyone who’s making the leap out of college and into the next phase of life.

“I hope you enjoy ‘Factfulness’ as much as I did,” Gates added. “And I hope you take Hans’s advice to heart. ‘When we have a fact-based worldview,’ he writes, ‘we can see that the world is not as bad as it seems—and we can see what we have to do to keep making it better.’ I agree. My wish for you at this special time is to learn to think, and act, factfully.”
