9. “Life is what You Make It” (Peter Buffet)
“Contrary to what many people might assume, Peter won’t inherit great wealth from his father. Instead, he was encouraged by his parents to find his own path. The book is a chronical of that journey, and the wisdom and perceptions he had developed along the way.” Bill Gates
Peter Buffet has found his own road in life, and has opted not to be stereotyped in accordance with his famous surname.
10. “Where Good Ideas Come From” (Steven Johnson)
Of ‘Where Good Ideas Come From’ Gates has said, “Especially for people in business or education, it’s a worthwhile book. It talks about the institutional structures that facilitate good ideas; how you get lots of people thinking about cutting-edge problems, how you put people together in a space where different skill sets and influences can come together, how you make the right kinds of materials available, but don’t force a conclusion.”
