Goodreads Podcast: Elizabeth Talks with Melinda Gates

Posted by Cybil on May 6, 2019

In the latest edition of the Books of Your Life with Elizabeth podcast, Goodreads Co-Founder Elizabeth Khuri Chandler talks with philanthropist and debut author Melinda Gates.

Melinda Gates is the co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The power couple's foundation has given billions of dollars toward solving some of the world's biggest problems.

The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World, Melinda Gates' first book, is just out. It's a call to action for female empowerment and full of lessons she's learned traveling the world as a philanthropist.

In her conversation with Elizabeth, Melinda Gates discusses her spiritual journey, the common frustrations she works to overcome, and being willing to show your vulnerabilities as a leader.

The books Melinda Gates recommends include: Awakening Joy: 10 Steps That Will Put You on the Road to Real Happiness by James Baraz and Shoshana Alexander, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari, The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have by Mark Nepo, Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton, and Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead by Brené Brown.
