He also decided to give The Vital Question an honorable mention.

Here’s more from Gates’ blog post: “I just looked over the list of books I read this year, and I noticed a pattern. A lot of them touch on a theme that I would call ‘how things work.’…I didn’t set out to explore these themes intentionally, though in retrospect it make a lot of sense since the main reason I read is to learn.” Click here to check out Gates’ 2014 list.
