Bill Gates’ Annual Reading List

Bill Gates is one of the richest men in the world. He’s also pretty smart and engaged in philanthropy. That makes him a decent guy, someone whose recommendations about business and success are worth listening to.

Every year, Gates releases his recommended reading list. The list is usually eclectic and contains books many of us have never heard of.

This summer’s list contains a book called Factfulness, by Hans Rosling. Gates calls it “One of the best books I’ve ever read.” It might be worth checking out! Other books on Gate’s list are:

• Origin Story: A Big History of Everything, by David Christian
• Leonardo da Vinci by Walter Isaacson (biography)
• Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I’ve Loved, by Kate Bowler
• Lincoln in the Bardo, by George Saunders (the only fiction in the bunch!)
