Bill Gates revealed five of his all-time favorite books

The co-founder of Microsoft Corporation, Bill Gates, despite being the owner of one of the largest tech companies globally, also loves to spend some time with himself by reading books. According to the man himself, he reads almost 50 books within an year, which means that each week, Bill Gates finishes one book.

Not only this, but at the end of the year, he posts about the books he read in that year and shares the name of the book he loved the most throughout that time.

However, in the ongoing year, it appears that Bill Gates has decided to talk about five of his favorite books throughout the year.


Starting off with the first book, Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land, Bill Gates explained that the reason this book is among his top 5 collections is due to its introduction to science fiction. Not only this, but his late partner, Paul Ellen, was also a fan of the same book.

Moving on to the second book, Surrender, Gate said that the book was responsible for the memoir coming straight from the stars. He further added that it is one of the most recent additions to his book collection.

Next up was the third book, Team of Rivals, written by Doris Kearns. In the description of this book, Bill wrote that he finds the book to be a good source for providing guidance towards a country.

The fourth book Bill discussed in his blog post was The Inner Game of Tennis, written by Robert Gallwey. While talking about it, Gates added that, according to him, despite the book being all about tennis, those who know not much about the game can also play. It teaches that both physical and mental states are equally important in order to reach a goal.

And lastly, Paul Strathem’s Mendeleyev's Dream became the fifth book about which Bill talked. As per the post, the book focuses on how fast science has changed.

Bill believes that by sharing these books with his followers, it can help them decide which books to give as Christmas gifts.
