Bill Gates, who is without definition, is one of the great people of this era that we live in. I consider him a teacher and role model in the world of business and software. Perhaps what you do not know, reader, that Bill Gates is an avid reader who reads Bill at the rate of a book every week or two, especially after moving away from Microsoft and bringing him closer to more than Working for humanitarian issues as it is considered one of the most prominent supporters of international projects to fight poverty and diseases and support education, sustainability, and entrepreneurship efforts in fragile economies.
From time to time, I have been regularly reading his blog on the Internet, and I recommend that all my readers visit you from time to time, surely you will come out with information that will benefit you in your life!
Today I bring you an introduction to the best six books that were read and recommended by the software icon Bill Gates for 2015 - these books include a beautiful mix of knowledge and science, Bill Gates says:
I went back to the books I read in 2015, and I came up with a model for the essential contents of those books, which I called "How Things Work." These books talk about things, in the material world, how we use steel and glass, or what it takes to overcome deadly diseases. Others offer insights into the human psyche: our strengths and faults, our ability to grow and develop throughout life, and the things we value. I didn't intentionally choose to explore these topics, but it gave me a lot of meaning later as my primary goal in reading them was learning.
The following video quickly browses the list of books which are not in a particular order, and we hope you find what you like:
The Book I: The Path to Personality
Author: David Brooks
Bill Gates thinks that: "For New York Times columnist David Brooks experiences the different values that motivate all of us, as Brooks acknowledges that American society has done an excellent job of teaching the virtues of autobiography (traits that lead to external success) - he means those traits that converge On it are the employers that fill our CVs - but the society has not instilled in the same spirit the right virtues in us (habits that lead to inner peace).
Brooks reviewed various historical faces that were reference figures of American society. I think he highlighted a distinctive portrait of General George Marshall, who participated in the Second World War. However, the distinction between these two types of virtues is not crystal clear; the book Way to Personality gave me a lot. One of the things I think of is that it is a look that sharpens our thinking about what it means to live life optimally."
The road to personality
Book Two: Explanation of Things: Complex Things in Simple Words
Author: Randall Monroe
Bill Gates thought: "Randall Monroe is the brain that authored XKCD's book explaining various topics ranging from how smartphones work by the US Constitution using only 1,000 of the most common English words, and the way the business plan is picturing with graphs, it is a brilliant principle because if you don't, You can explain what you want to say, you did not know it!
Monroe, who worked on NASA's robotics, is the ideal person to talk about this topic. The book is full of helpful explanations and graphics for everything from a dishwasher to a nuclear power plant. Monroe jokes in the book will make you laugh out loud. It is an excellent guide for those with curious minds."
Book Three: Who is Nixon: Anatomy of a Man's Personality
Author: Evan Thomas
Bill Gates Opinion: Former US President Richard Nixon often portrays that he is nothing more than a fraudster and a warlord, so it is gratifying to see moderate accountability for Nixon's psyche by journalist Evan Thomas, I will not say that he is a sympathetic portrait in many ways, I stress that Nixon Someone who is not compassionate, but someone who feels others. Rather than focusing solely on Nixon's presidential term, Thomas worked systematically from the cradle to the grave, to give you insight into the driving instinct of a brilliant, flawed man and left behind many conflicting opinions."
Fourth Book: Sustainable Materials with Open Eyes
Author: Julian Elwood, Jonathan Cullen, and others
Bill Gates Opinion: "How much can we reduce carbon emissions from making and using the various things around us? "A good deal" is the answer to the team that wrote this book from Cambridge University. They look with interest to the materials most used by humans, with a particular focus on steel and aluminum. They explain how we can reduce emissions by up to 50% without asking people to make great sacrifices.
Although the subject can be as dry as the desert, the authors of the book kept it bright with a set of colorful graphics and smart analogies without compromising clarity and scientific accuracy. I learned a lot from this thinking on a critical topic."
Book Five: Eradication: Freeing the World of Diseases Forever?
Writer: Nancy not Stephan
Bill Gates' opinion: "Stefan's history of disease extermination efforts can give you a good feeling about how this work will be. The book examines how a variety of different approaches have been tried without success, and how much we have learned from our failed experiences. She writes in an academic style that makes it difficult for non-experts to reach her invaluable arguments, but it is worth the effort. You can come up with a clearer sense of how to use the lessons of the past as a guide to future conservation efforts."
Sixth book: Mental: The New Psychology of Success
Author: Carol S. Dweck.
Bill Gates' opinion: "This book caught my attention a few years ago during a session on invention in education with my friend Nathan Merfeld. It has had an important impact on the educational work of the institution." He means the Bill Gates Foundation" through smart research studies and attractive writing. Our beliefs about our capabilities exert a tremendous influence on how we learn and how we walk in life.
Bill Gates Special Addition:
I have read a book this year that deserves a glimpse of light in this list, but I did not have time to write about it all it deserved, it is a book: The Vital Question by Nick Lane, a fantastic investigation into the origin of life. I loved this book so much that I bought all the other books for Mr. Line, and had the opportunity to meet Line and talk to him about his research last September when we were in New York. I will post more about his fantastic work when I get the chance.
