Bill Gates’ Best Books of 2014

Bill Gates this week revealed the five favourite books he’s read this year, and you may be surprised by what he’s revealed! The list, which appeared on the Microsoft co-founder’s blog , is not full of computer and technology titles. Rather, it’s one featuring a broader selection of titles on current world issues and business as well as a brilliant fiction title written by Aussie Graeme Simsion.
