As you know, Bill Gates is an avid reader. In a year he can get to read hundreds of different titles, including essays and novels. The philanthropist and founder of Microsoft love to share his favorite reads with the public, especially in view of the holidays.

Even this Christmas is no exception. Bill Gates has shared a list of five of his all-time favorite books.

The first book chosen by Gates is ” The Inner Game of Tennis “, by W. Timothy Gallwey. “It’s required reading for anyone who plays tennis, but actually I think it’s required reading for anyone who’s never played it in their life,” Gates said, explaining that it offers an important insight into the role of mental fitness versus physical fitness. and how to overcome mistakes. In Italy, it is published by the Ultra publishing house.

The second book is ” Stranger in a Strange Land ” by Robert A. Heinlein. “It’s a read I have in common with Paul Allen (Microsoft co-founder who recently passed away), we fell in love with it as kids but it remains one of my all-time favorite sci-fi novels.” The book tells of a young man returning to Earth, after living on Mars, and his journey towards the creation of a new religion. In Italy it is published by Fanucci.


In third place we find “ Surrender. 40 Songs, One Story ,” recent biography of rock star Bono. “It came out last month, so if you’re a fan of U2 you probably already have it or have already wanted to buy it, but I think it’s a hugely entertaining read even for those who aren’t fans of the group,” he added. Mondadori published it in Italy.

The list continues with a book unpublished in Italy: ” Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln “. “I never get tired of reading new books about Abraham Lincoln and this is one of the best books on the subject,” explained Bill Gates. Amazon still sells the original Kindle e-book.

In the fifth and last place of Bill Gates’ suggestions we find “ Mendeleyev’s Dream: The Quest for the Elements “, by Paul Strathern. “It is an extraordinary and fascinating essay on how science has developed over time, and how human curiosity has evolved over the millennia”. This too is unpublished in Italy and unfortunately it is not even available in Kindle format.
