5 ideas for summer reading


在全球大流行疫情期间,亿万富翁和微软联合创始人比尔·盖茨(Bill Gates)如期给我们带来了2021夏季推荐书单。“我希望今年夏天至少有一本能激发你的兴趣,”盖茨在推出他的年度阅读建议时说。盖茨在一篇博客文章中写道:“当我完成一本书并决定下一本书时,我选择的内容通常并不总是押韵或理由。” “有时我会读一本好书,并受到启发去阅读更多关于同一主题的书。其他时候,我渴望听从我尊敬的人的推荐。”下面就来看看这次他推荐的书籍有哪些?

If you're looking for a good book to read this summer, these five are some of my favorites.

A Promised Land by Barack Obama.

Barack shares his career and how he ended up being president of the United States, the tough decisions he made, and which ones he wonders if he got right.

I think it's a powerful book with lots of insights into great leadership.

An Elegant Defense: The Extraordinary New Science of the Immune System by Matt Richtel.

The human immune system is quite phenomenal.

And the last 10 years we've gained a lot more knowledge, which is one of the reasons why we can make new vaccines and cure lots of additional diseases.

This book, it's approachable.

It's fascinating.

I recommend it.
