Bill Gates is known to be an avid reader. In his blog, he recently suggested some interesting books to read this summer. Here is the list.

Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh    

Hyperbole And Half

What Bill Gates says about the book: “Based on Brosh’s wildly popular website, [the book] consists of brief vignettes and comic drawings about her young life. The adventures she recounts are mostly inside her head, where we hear and see the kind of inner thoughts most of us are too timid to let out in public.”

The Magic of Reality by Richard Dawkins   

The Magic of Reality

What Bill Gates says about the book: “An engaging, well-illustrated science textbook offering compelling answers to big questions [and] a plea for readers of all ages to approach mysteries with rigor and curiosity.”

What If

What Bill Gates says about the book: “An engaging, well-illustrated science textbook offering compelling answers to big questions [and] a plea for readers of all ages to approach mysteries with rigor and curiosity.”

What Bill Gates says about the book:  “Biss examines what lies behind people’s fears of vaccinating their children. Like many of us, she concludes that vaccines are safe, effective, and almost miraculous…. But she is not out to demonize anyone who holds opposing views.”

How to Lie with Statistics by Darrell Huff  

How to Lie with Statistics

What Bill Gates says about the book:  “Shows you how visuals can be used to exaggerate trends and give distorted comparisons–a timely reminder, given how often infographics show up…. [It’s also an] introduction to the use of statistics, and a helpful refresher for anyone who is already well versed in it.”

Should We Eat Meat? by Vaclav Smil  

Should We Eat Meat

What Bill Gates says about the book:  “The richer the world gets, the more meat it eats. And the more meat it eats, the bigger the threat to the planet…. I don’t think we can expect large numbers of people to make drastic reductions [so] I’m betting on innovation, including higher agricultural productivity and the development of meat substitutes.”
