Bill Gates is back with his annual list of recommended books. Gates lists a few of his favorites from the year with short synopses and links to much longer, personal, and thoughtful reviews. Every year, the list is a fascinating glimpse into the thought process and reading life of one of America's most prominent business people and philanthropists.
