There’s something for everyone in Bill Gates’ top books of 2018.
Who doesn’t like giving—or getting—books during the holiday season?
Bill Gates does – a lot! Plus, he believes everyone could use a few more books in their lives, so that is why he put together the book list of the year—which are also highly giftable.
From a how-to guide about meditation to a deep dive on autonomous weapons to a thriller about the fall of a once-promising company, there’s something for everyone:
- Educated, by Tara Westover | A memoir of a young woman whose thirst for learning was so strong that she ended up getting a Ph.D. from Cambridge University.
- Army of None, by Paul Scharre | Scharre offers clear explanations and presents both the pros and cons of machine-driven warfare.
- Bad Blood, by John Carreyrou | Carreyrou gives you the definitive insider’s look at the rise and fall of Theranos.
- 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, by Yuval Noah Harari | 21 Lessons offers a helpful framework for processing the news and thinking about the challenges we face.
