Summer Books 2016 by Bill Gates
比爾‧蓋茲的 2016 夏日書籍

I've read some terrific books lately. Here are a few you might wanna read this summer.
我最近讀了一些很出色的書。這裡是幾本你今年夏天可能會想讀的。

The Vital Question by Nick Lane
Nick Lane 的《The Vital Question(重要問題)》

He starts with the basic question of how life started. The work he's done on that is so intriguing. He seems to be the first guy who's really looked into certain weird things about the mitochondria. But he puts forward all sorts of ideas about different diseases that really bear looking into.
他從生命如何開始那基本問題起頭。他對那的研究非常吸引人。他似乎是第一個真正探究粒線體特定奇怪事情的人。但他也提出各種關於不同疾病、非常值得研究的想法。

Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari
Yuval Noah Harari 的《Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind(人類大歷史:從野獸到扮演上帝)》

Sapiens is really good. And there's a lot of things about early human history that most people haven't been exposed to. And he's good and succinct on that. And then he goes off in many directions, like, "Are we happier than we've ever been?" "And what about robots?" It's got the broad framework. It's a great book.
Sapiens 這本書真的很棒。早期人類歷史有許多是大部分的人沒接觸過的。而作者對那很擅長也很簡潔明瞭。接著他來到許多面向,像是「我們比以前更開心嗎?」「機器人怎麼樣?」這本書的架構很廣。是本好書。

How Not to Be Wrong by Jordan Ellenberg
Jordan Ellenberg 的《How Not to Be Wrong(數學教你不犯錯)》

This book has tons of good stuff in it for a non-mathematician. He updates you about the world of math, what advances have taken place. His enthusiasm comes across. In math, if you don't, kind of, practice it, you get this attrition of your mathematical thinking.
這本書對非數學家來說有許多好東西。他更新你對數學世界的認識、更新有哪些進展發生。作者的熱忱表露出來。數學的領域,如果你沒有有點去運用的話,你的數學思考能力就會磨損。

The Power to Compete by Ryoichi Mikitani and Hiroshi Mikitani
三木谷良一和三木谷浩史的《The Power to Compete(競爭的能力)》

To me, Japan is fascinating. In the 1980s and '90s, the Japanese were just turning out engineering and doing great stuff. How did they lose their way? Why have these companies not been more innovative? Japan's actually had a hard time changing, but the country can be in very good shape.
對我來說,日本很迷人。在 1980 和 90 年代,日本正在發展工程和進行一些很棒的事。他們是怎麼迷失的?為什麼這些公司沒有更創新呢?日本其實在改變上遭受困難,但這國家可以發展得很好。

The thing I spent the most time on is Seveneves by Neal Stephenson. I haven't read science fiction much in the last decade, which is, you know, kind of crazy because I used to read it massively. This terrible thing happens that has to do with the moon breaking apart. The planet's gonna undergo this meteoric bombardment for, like, 5,000 years. It makes you think about a lot of things. You know, like, if the world's gonna end in two years, who's gonna come to work? Should kids go to school? It's a really good book.
我花最多時間的是 Neal Stephenson 的《Seveneves(七夏娃)》。我過去十年來沒讀多少科幻小說,你知道,那有點怪,因為我以前讀很多。這件可怕事情的發生和月球碎裂有關。星球將遭受大概五千年的隕石轟炸。那讓你思考許多事。你知道,像是,如果這世界兩年內會終結,誰要去工作?孩子們應該去上學嗎?這是本真的很棒的書。

So those are some of the books I'd recommend this summer. I hope you find something you like.
所以那些就是我今年夏天會推薦的書。希望你找到自己喜歡的。
