Although Bill Gates has been removed from daily work at Microsoft for quite some time, that all changed last year when Microsoft announced Satya Nadella as their new CEO and Gates took the position of Technology Advisor. But, for the most part, Gates has continued to make headlines for his philanthropic work and advancing technology in areas unrelated to Microsoft.
Although Gates was not a speaker at this year's TED 2015 event, he was invited to attend and was asked by the team to recommend a list of books for the conference attendees. Naturally, Gates obliged and created a list with books that focus on health, business and the world. In no particular order, here is the list that Bill Gates put together for the attendees at TED 2015.
- Business Adventures by John Brooks
- The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin
- On Immunity by Eula Biss
- Making the Modern World by Vaclav Smil
- How Asia Works by Joe Studwell
- How to Lie with Statistics by Darrell Huff
