A fifth grader gets a homework assignment to select his future career path from a list of occupations. He ticks “astronaut” but quickly adds “scientist” to the list and selects it as well. The boy is convinced that if he reads enough, he can explore as many career paths as he likes. And so he reads—everything from encyclopedias to science fiction novels. He reads so passionately that his parents have to institute a “no reading policy” at the dinner table.
That boy was Bill Gates, and he hasn’t stopped reading yet—not even after becoming one of the most successful people on the planet. Nowadays, his reading material has changed from science fiction and reference books: recently, he revealed that he reads at least 50 nonfiction books a year. Gates chooses nonfiction titles because they explain how the world works. “Each book opens up new avenues of knowledge to explore,” Gates says.
这个男孩就是比尔·盖茨，他至今仍未停止阅读——即使他已成为了这个世界上最成功的人士之一。现在，他的阅读材料已不再是科幻小说和参考书了。最近，他透露自己每年至少阅读 50 本纪实作品。盖茨选择纪实类书籍是因为它们解释了世界的运转方式。“每一本书都为探索知识开辟了新的途径。”比尔·盖茨说道。
