Bill Gates’ favorite books of 2013 point to a better future for the world

Bill Gates prioritizes disease eradication over the proliferation of internet access and uses his vast wealth for the purposes of malaria research. Its perhaps not a surprise, then, that his favorite books of 2013 are all pragmatic works of non-fiction question that how the modern world was built, and how to make it better. His picks appear to echo his logical world-view, valuing fairness, balance, and understanding. The World Until Yesterday, written by Jared Diamond about hunter-gatherer lifestyles, doesnt romanticize tribal life, instead displaying the authors desire to find the best practices and share them. Paul Sabins The Bet discusses a $1,000 wager between professors about whether human quality of life would become better or worse over time, but does it without ridiculing either proponent.
