Reading books is one of my favorite ways to learn new things and better understand the world. I try to read every day, even when I’m busy and traveling. I’m excited to share with you what I'm reading, the people I meet, and what I'm learning. I hope that you'll join the conversation here and on my blog, gatesnotes.com.

Bill Gates believes we need a better way of diagnosing Alzheimer’s before we’re able to slow the progression of the disease.
