Bill Gates Is Giving One Of His Favorite Books To New College Graduates

Published : 6/14/2018

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has a gift for anyone graduating from a college or university in the United States this spring.

The billionaire recently announced that he's giving away free downloads of the book Factfulness by the late global-health expert Hans Rosling.

The book, whose full title is Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World — and Why Things Are Better Than You Think, was published earlier this year. "Although I think everyone should read it, it has especially useful insights for anyone who's making the leap out of college and into the next phase of life," Gates wrote in a blog post.

Bill Gates explanied in a previous post about the book, Rosling looks at "ten instincts that keep us from seeing the world factfully," and shows how "the world can be both bad and better." As an example, Gates points out that a tornado killing 10 people may be a tragedy, but overall tornadoes are much less deadly than they used to be.
