Bill Gates Offers a Free Book to College Graduates

Bill Gates has always been vocal about his appreciation of books, offering book recommendations and reviews throughout the years. But this year, the Microsoft co-founder is hoping to spread his love of books by granting college graduates a free copy of one book that can prove beneficial according to Gates


Gates announced on his blog, Gates Notes, that he is granting soon-to-be college graduates a copy of Factfulness: Ten Reasons We’re Wrong About the World–and Why Things Are Better Than You Think by Hans Rosling. 


According to Gates, the book is, “packed with advice about how to see the world clearly.” While the advice that Rosling offers can be enlighten any reader, it can be particularly relevant to graduates entering the real-world.


“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.

The free copy will be awarded to students who will be graduating with an associate’s, bachelor’s, or post-graduate degree. Unfortunately, due to international publishing rights the free copy will only be available to students within the United States. 


If you qualify, you can download a free pdf of Factfulness by logging in or singing up to Gates Notes.


“I hope you enjoy Factfulness as much as I did. And I hope you take Hans’s advice to heart,” Gates wrote. “My wish for you at this special time is to learn to think, and act, factfully. Congratulations and good luck!”
