About Unofficial Bill Gates Book Club

Bill Gates has recommended and reviewed hundreds of intelligent and readable books on his website 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!
