Here’s Every Book Bill Gates Has Ever Recommended on His Website

Mar 29, 2017

Bill Gates is a very busy man, but as his admirers know, he makes time to read. The Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist regularly reviews books on his website and formulates lists of his favorite books of the year, or the best ones on a given subject. Here is every book he's ever recommended on his website, from highly academic texts to The Hunger Games.

Note: In the assorted reviews category, we left off books that had been included in other lists — but when the same book appeared on multiple reading lists, we allowed the repetition.
