‘Business Adventures’ written by John Brooks is a highly recommended book by Bill Gates. “The best business book I’ve ever read,” he said. The book tells the story of an American corporate and financial life. John Brooks’ books are easy to understand and entertaining simultaneously as he describes everything by telling stories of characters and not give simplistic explanations about success.
Barack Obama also recommended ‘Factfulness’ by Hans Rosling. This is one of the five books he recommended reading that he read in the summer. He said said, “This summer I’ve been absorbed by new novels, revisited an old classic, and reaffirmed my faith in our ability to move forward together when we seek the truth.”
