Books With Bill

Every year, Bill Gates posts on his blog about the books he recommends for summer reading. “The following five books are simply ones that I loved, made me think in new ways, and kept me up reading long past when I should have gone to sleep.” He’s clearly an eclectic reader. This summer’s recommendations:

Seveneves by Neal Stephenson (scifi)

How Not to Be Wrong by Jordan Ellenberg  (non-fiction, mathematics)

The Vital Question by Nick Lane (non-fiction, energy)

The Power to Compete by Ryoichi Mikitani and Hiroshi Mikitani  (Japan)

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Noah Yuval Harari  (non-fiction)
