We have never been the only human species on earth, roughly around 100,000 years ago there were about 6 but the only ones who have survived were homo sapiens. But how? We weren’t always the only species of human on Earth — roughly 100,000 years ago, there were six, but homo sapiens are the only ones who have survived. How come? Bill Gates says “Both Melinda and I read this one, and it has sparked lots of great conversations at our dinner table, Harari takes on a daunting challenge: to tell the entire history of the human race in just 400 pages”. Harari looks towards the future instead of dwelling on the past as future has artificial intelligence and genetic engineering that makes the definition of human more fluid. “Bill Gates recommend it to anyone who’s interested in the history and future of our species.

12. Shoe Dog by Phil Knight

According to Bill Gates’ 2016 statement “This book, about our aging electrical grid, fits in one of my favorite genres: ‘Books About Mundane Stuff That Are Actually Fascinating,”.

Gates says he is grateful to a friend for recommending him this book after a decade of sci-fi dry spell. He writes in his blog that the plot catches you at the very first sentence when the moon blows up. That’s the beginning of the story and soon the world learns how their species is about to be doomed, how in the time period of two years a meteor shower will destroy all life form on earth. Humanity is in the struggle of sending as many spacecraft in orbit as they can to escape the apocalypse.

Munroe is the brain works behind “xkcd” webcomic. Munroe published a book in 2015 which explained about the modern technology by using the 1000 most common English language words. According to Bill Gates if someone cannot explain something simply it means they don’t understand it. Bill Gates favorite explanation is about microwave “a food heating radio box” that cooks frozen food unevenly. “When you put iced food in a radio box, after a while, parts of it start to turn to water. But since radio boxes are really good at heating water, those parts start to get hot really fast. They can even get so hot they start turning to air — before all the ice is even gone!”

2. The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen

Bill Gates recommended The Sympathizer in his 2017 book recommendations. This book won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize.
