About Unofficial Bill Gates Book Club

Bill Gates has recommended and reviewed hundreds of intelligent and readable books on his website https://gatesnotes.com/Books This unofficial 'Bill Gates Book Club' is all about having friendly, down-to-earth and thought-provoking chats over drinks about these fantastic books. It's a way for us to explore Bill Gates' reading list together and hopefully get smarter while meeting like-minded people along the way. Meetings are held monthly in inner Sydney (near public transport) and new members and friends are always welcome. Happy reading!
