3.0 out of 5 stars 50 Facts That Should Change the World, 9 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 50 Facts That Should Change the World (Kindle Edition)
The book is a good read with some notable information. But the author stresses too much on events and vain opinions regarding the West. Some facts such as overeating & starving in Western societies are irrevelent to most of the rest of the world. People also are starving in Third World countries due to abject poverty and not because of psychological illness or lower self esteem. I think only a small percentage of people are affected by these so-called events related to food in Western world when observed from global perspective. These factors cannot change the world. Another topic is the high number of Avon ladies in Brazil. This is just a vain outlook on the part of a female Western writer regarding beauty and aesthetics ; the vast majority of people both in rich and poor countries have to struggle day in and day out for their everyday livelihood. The same is true for botox injections and cosmetic surgery. Instead she should stress the positive use of cosmetic surgery for tens of thousands of war wounded from domestic and international conflicts, rehabilitation and psychological help for millions of people suffering from physical and emotional trauma caused by wars, natural disasters, accidents etc..But many of the facts are useful read. She did'nt write about the proliferation of small arms in conflicts all over the world. These weapons killed millions of people- much more than the nuclear weapons.

Anyway, the book is a good read but much needs to be done by the author.
