Here’s What Bill Gates Has Been Reading These Days
Ever wonder what Mega-Successful people like Bill Gates is reading these days? Last week I shared Pat Flynn’s top read, but you may be surprised at what Gates determined were great reads. “Entrepreneur Bill Gates founded the world’s largest software business, Microsoft, with Paul Allen, and subsequently became one of the richest men in the world.”
It’s interesting to hear his philosophies on reading. . .
His top 15 favorite books reveal a diverse thinker seeking to enrich the world around him.
Yet, his top reads for 2017 reflects a desire to understand those who are less fortunate than himself.
In 2014 Gates decided to step down as chairman of Microsoft and focus on his charity work through his foundation. His recent “most recommended books” reveal his desire to understand other people.
