Bil Gates: 5 Books To Read This Summer
For a good read this summer. Try these five books.
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. No gentleman in Moscow was so clever. There’s a lot of illusions that Russian literature and history have been amazing story because it manages to be a little bit of everything. It’s kind of a fantastical romance but it’s kind of the real world too.
Presidents of War by Michael Beschloss the public really does not want to go to war but then are we willing to defend our honor. It means that having a good president is very important. You better hope that you have some good leaders when you get in the war.
The Future of Capitalism by Paul Collier. There’s a crisis for capitalism. Individualism has been taken too far. He introduces this notion of an ethical family an ethical company and an ethical government. We have to be loyal to something we have to have a group thing where we’re not just out for ourselves.
Upheaval by Jared Diamond. He took examples of countries that actually had dealt with the problem and come out of it better off. He was kind of a psychological framework that actually works pretty well. He doesn’t force you to have a negative or positive point of view. At work. What the US is facing in terms of polarization. We’ve just seen by reason that especially at least admits the possibility of solving these problems.
Nine Pints by Rose George. She mostly wants dead to keep you about blood and want an important and interesting history there has been about it in the history of the blood supply the different ways of gathering blood things like leeches where their ability to suck blood out is at that it. I’m sure people find that fascinating. So matchbook it’s an interesting you can read all about it. So what are you read. Just one of these are you read them all. I hope you find something you really enjoy.
