This year, Gates has prepared a diverse collection of entertainment, including books, TV shows and a playlist of favorite songs, all aimed at making the most of the summer months.

For book lovers, Gates suggests two captivating reads. The first is "Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow" by Gabrielle Zevin, a thrilling novel that explores the friendship of two individuals who became close because of video games and later create their own gaming ventures. Gates found a personal connection to the story, drawing parallels to his own experiences with Paul Allen and their collaborative work at Microsoft. Zevin's skillful storytelling and compelling characters make this book a must-read.

The second recommendation is Howard French's "Born in Blackness", a thought-provoking and thoroughly researched nonfiction work. French, a journalist of African descent, challenges traditional Western notions of African history. He sheds light on the rich and complex civilizations that existed on the continent before European colonization, highlighting the political, military, and cultural achievements of African kingdoms. After reading the book, Gates wanted to explore this fascinating subject further.

For those looking for quality television content, Gates praises the Danish political drama series "Borgen," available on Netflix. The series revolves around Birgitte Nyborg, Denmark's first female prime minister, who navigates the complexities of the political landscape. Gates praises the series for its realistic portrayal of political coalitions and the complexities of leadership. In addition to its entertainment value, "Borgen" offers valuable insights into the dynamics of governance.

To accompany summer adventures, Gates also shares a Spotify playlist featuring his favorite tracks. The playlist spans a wide range of songs, including timeless classics from Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole, and The Beatles, as well as contemporary hits from artists like Vampire Weekend, Adele, and U2.
