Bill Gates’ Summer Reading List Is Here — See the 5 Books on It

  • Bill Gates has released his annual summer reading list.
  • The five books tackle matters like gender equality, political polarization, and more.
  • Here are the books Gates enjoyed and recommends others read too.

Summer’s around the corner again, and Bill Gates has named the books he recommends people read during the season.

On Monday, Gates announced his 2022 summer reading list, which includes five books he enjoyed but admits do “not exactly sound like the stuff of beach reads.”

“As I was putting together my list of suggested reading for the summer, I realized that the topics they cover sound pretty heavy for vacation reading,” he wrote in a blog post. “There are books here about gender equality, political polarization, climate change, and the hard truth that life never goes the way young people think it will.”

“But none of the five books below feel heavy,” Gates continued. “Each of the writers—three novelists, a journalist, and a scientist—was able to take a meaty subject and make it compelling without sacrificing any complexity.”

Here are the five books Gates wants people to pack for their summer vacations:
