Four books from Bill Gates to “freshen up” in summer

Bill Gates-a businessman, the founder of Microsoft, philanthropist, and a book lover has a list of books recommended by him to read in summer. DNA team has chosen four out of them and suggests you not to miss a chance to follow the advice of a billionaire. 

The Choice by Dr. Edith Eva Eger

“This book is both a memoir and a guide to processing trauma. Eger was only sixteen years old when she and her family were sent to Auschwitz. After surviving unbelievable horrors, she moved to the United States and became a therapist. Her unique background gives her amazing insight, and I think many people can find comfort right now from her suggestions on how to cope with difficult situations”- mentions Bill Gates.

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

“This is the kind of novel you’ll think and talk about for a long time after you finish it. The plot is a bit hard to explain: it consists of six inter-related stories that take place centuries apart. I particularly loved the one about a young American doctor on a sailing ship in the South Pacific in the mid-1800s. But if you’re in the mood for a compelling tale about the best and worst of humanity, I think you’ll find yourself as engrossed in it as I was,”-says Bill Gates. 

The Ride of a Lifetime by Bob Iger

“This is one of the best business books I’ve read in several years. Iger does a terrific job explaining what it’s like to be the CEO of a large company. Whether you’re looking for business insights or just an entertaining read, I think anyone would enjoy his stories,”-says Bill Gates. 

Good Economics for Hard Times by Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo

“Banerjee and Duflo won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences last year, and they are two of the smartest economists working today. Fortunately, they’re also very good at making economics accessible to the average person. Their newest book is about inequality and political divisions,”- tells Bill Gates.

New books can change your way of thinking and define your new skills. Kindly pick up your books and read them with love.
