The Moment of Lift by , Book Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “In her book, Melinda tells the stories of the inspiring people she’s met through her work all over the world, digs into the data, and powerfully illustrates issues that need our attention—from child marriage to gender inequity in the workplace.” — President Barack Obama “The Moment of Lift is an urgent call to courage. It changed how I think about myself, my family, my work, and what’s possible in the world. Melinda weaves together vulnerable, brave storytelling and compelling data to make this one of those rare books that you carry in your heart and mind long after the last page.” — Brené Brown, Ph.D., author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Dare to Lead “Melinda Gates has spent many years working with women around the world. This book is an urgent manifesto for an equal society where women are valued and recognized in all spheres of life. Most of all, it is a call for unity, inclusion and connection. We need this message more than ever.” — Malala Yousafzai "Melinda Gates's book is a lesson in listening. A powerful, poignant, and ultimately humble call to arms." — Tara Westover, author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Educated A debut from Melinda Gates, a timely and necessary call to action for women's empowerment. “How can we summon a moment of lift for human beings – and especially for women? Because when you lift up women, you lift up humanity.” For the last twenty years, Melinda Gates has been on a mission to find solutions for people with the most urgent needs, wherever they live. Throughout this journey, one thing has become increasingly clear to her: If you want to lift a society up, you need to stop keeping women down. In this moving and compelling book, Melinda shares lessons she’s learned from the inspiring people she’s met during her work and travels around the world. As she writes in the introduction, “That is why I had to write this book—to share the stories of people who have given focus and urgency to my life. I want all of us to see ways we can lift women up where we live.” Melinda’s unforgettable narrative is backed by startling data as she presents the issues that most need our attention—from child marriage to lack of access to contraceptives to gender inequity in the workplace. And, for the first time, she writes about her personal life and the road to equality in her own marriage. Throughout, she shows how there has never been more opportunity to change the world—and ourselves. Writing with emotion, candor, and grace, she introduces us to remarkable women and shows the power of connecting with one another. When we lift others up, they lift us up, too.

Showing Up for Life by Bill Gates, Sr.,Mary Ann Mackin Book Summary:

A heartfelt, deeply personal book that shines a bright light on the values and principles that Bill Gates Sr. has learned over a lifetime of “showing up”: lessons that he learned growing up during the Great Depression, and that he instilled in his children and continues to practice on the world stage as the co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Through the course of several dozen narratives arranged in roughly chronological fashion, Gates introduces the people and experiences that influenced his thinking and guided his moral compass. Among them: the scoutmaster who taught him about teamwork and self reliance; and his famous son, Trey, whose curiosity and passion for computers and software led him to ultimately co-found Microsoft. Through revealing stories of his daughters, Kristi and Libby; his late wife, Mary, and his current wife, Mimi; and his work with Nelson Mandela and Jimmy Carter, among others, he discusses the importance of hard work, getting along, honoring a confidence, speaking out, and much more. Showing Up for Life translates one man’s experiences over fourscore years of living into an inspiring road map for readers everywhere. As Bill Gates Sr. puts it: "I’m 83 years old. Representing the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and everyone who is a part of it has given me the opportunity to see more of the world and its rich possibilities than most people ever do. I never imagined that I’d be working this late in life, or enjoying it so much."

Dictators by Frank Dikötter Book Summary:

A New Statesman, Financial Times and Economist Book of the Year 'Brilliant' NEW STATESMAN, BOOKS OF THE YEAR 'Enlightening and a good read' SPECTATOR 'Moving and perceptive' NEW STATESMAN Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Il-sung, Ceausescu, Mengistu of Ethiopia and Duvalier of Haiti. No dictator can rule through fear and violence alone. Naked power can be grabbed and held temporarily, but it never suffices in the long term. A tyrant who can compel his own people to acclaim him will last longer. The paradox of the modern dictator is that he must create the illusion of popular support. Throughout the twentieth century, hundreds of millions of people were condemned to enthusiasm, obliged to hail their leaders even as they were herded down the road to serfdom. In How to Be a Dictator, Frank Dikötter returns to eight of the most chillingly effective personality cults of the twentieth century. From carefully choreographed parades to the deliberate cultivation of a shroud of mystery through iron censorship, these dictators ceaselessly worked on their own image and encouraged the population at large to glorify them. At a time when democracy is in retreat, are we seeing a revival of the same techniques among some of today's world leaders? This timely study, told with great narrative verve, examines how a cult takes hold, grows, and sustains itself. It places the cult of personality where it belongs, at the very heart of tyranny.

All About Love by bell hooks Book Summary:

The acclaimed first volume in feminist icon bell hooks' "Love Song to the Nation,” All About Love is a revelation about what causes a polarized society and how to heal the divisions that cause suffering. Here is the truth about love, and inspiration to help us instill caring, compassion, and strength in our homes, schools, and workplaces. “The word ‘love’ is most often defined as a noun, yet we would all love better if we used it as a verb,” writes bell hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire in All About Love. Here, at her most provocative and intensely personal, renowned scholar, cultural critic and feminist bell hooks offers a proactive new ethic for a society bereft with lovelessness--not the lack of romance, but the lack of care, compassion, and unity. People are divided, she declares, by society’s failure to provide a model for learning to love. As bell hooks uses her incisive mind to explore the question “What is love?” her answers strike at both the mind and heart. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for individuals and for a nation. The Utne Reader declared bell hooks one of the “100 Visionaries Who Can Change Your Life.” All About Love is a powerful, timely affirmation of just how profoundly her revelations can change hearts and minds for the better.

• New York Times bestseller • The 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming, based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers around the world “At this point in time, the Drawdown book is exactly what is needed; a credible, conservative solution-by-solution narrative that we can do it. Reading it is an effective inoculation against the widespread perception of doom that humanity cannot and will not solve the climate crisis. Reported by-effects include increased determination and a sense of grounded hope.” —Per Espen Stoknes, Author, What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming “There’s been no real way for ordinary people to get an understanding of what they can do and what impact it can have. There remains no single, comprehensive, reliable compendium of carbon-reduction solutions across sectors. At least until now. . . . The public is hungry for this kind of practical wisdom.” —David Roberts, Vox “This is the ideal environmental sciences textbook—only it is too interesting and inspiring to be called a textbook.” —Peter Kareiva, Director of the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, UCLA In the face of widespread fear and apathy, an international coalition of researchers, professionals, and scientists have come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. One hundred techniques and practices are described here—some are well known; some you may have never heard of. They range from clean energy to educating girls in lower-income countries to land use practices that pull carbon out of the air. The solutions exist, are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are currently enacting them with skill and determination. If deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, they represent a credible path forward, not just to slow the earth’s warming but to reach drawdown, that point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline. These measures promise cascading benefits to human health, security, prosperity, and well-being—giving us every reason to see this planetary crisis as an opportunity to create a just and livable world.

Invisible Women by Caroline Criado Perez Book Summary:

Data is fundamental to the modern world. From economic development, to healthcare, to education and public policy, we rely on numbers to allocate resources and make crucial decisions. But because so much data fails to take into account gender, because it treats men as the default and women as atypical, bias and discrimination are baked into our systems. And women pay tremendous costs for this bias, in time, money, and often with their lives. Celebrated feminist advocate Caroline Criado Perez investigates shocking root cause of gender inequality and research in Invisible Women†‹, diving into women’s lives at home, the workplace, the public square, the doctor’s office, and more. Built on hundreds of studies in the US, the UK, and around the world, and written with energy, wit, and sparkling intelligence, this is a groundbreaking, unforgettable exposé that will change the way you look at the world.

Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too by Jomny Sun Book Summary:

The illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe Earth, where he meets all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love, and happiness, while learning to feel a little better about himself—based on the enormously popular Twitter account. Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, an alien sent to study Earth. Always feeling apart, even among his species, Jomny feels at home for the first time among the earthlings he meets. There is a bear tired of other creatures running in fear, an egg struggling to decide what to hatch into, a turtle hiding itself by learning camouflage, a puppy struggling to express its true feelings, and many more. The characters are unique and inventive—bees think long and hard about what love means, birds try to eat the sun, nothingness questions its own existence, a ghost comes to terms with dying, and an introverted hedgehog slowly lets Jomny see its artistic insecurities. At the same time, Jomny’s curious presence allows these characters to open up to him in ways they were never able to before, revealing the power of somebody who is just there to listen. Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too is also the story behind the widely-shared and typo-filled @jonnysun twitter account. Since the beginning, Sun intentionally tweeted from an outsider’s perspective, creating a truly distinct voice. Now, that outsider has taken shape in the character of Jomny, who observes Earth with the same intelligent, empathetic, and charmingly naïve voice that won over his fans on social media. New fans will find it organic, and old fans will delight at seeing the clever words that made them fans in the first place. Through this story of a lost, lonely and confused Alien finding friendship, acceptance, and love among the animals and plants of Earth, we will all learn how to be a little more human. And for all the earth-bound creatures here on this planet, we will all learn how sometimes, it takes an outsider to help us see ourselves for who we truly are.

Nine Pints by Rose George Book Summary:

An eye-opening exploration of blood, the lifegiving substance with the power of taboo, the value of diamonds and the promise of breakthrough science Blood carries life, yet the sight of it makes people faint. It is a waste product and a commodity pricier than oil. It can save lives and transmit deadly infections. Each one of us has roughly nine pints of it, yet many don’t even know their own blood type. And for all its ubiquitousness, the few tablespoons of blood discharged by 800 million women are still regarded as taboo: menstruation is perhaps the single most demonized biological event. Rose George, author of The Big Necessity, is renowned for her intrepid work on topics that are invisible but vitally important. In Nine Pints, she takes us from ancient practices of bloodletting to the breakthough of the "liquid biopsy," which promises to diagnose cancer and other diseases with a simple blood test. She introduces Janet Vaughan, who set up the world’s first system of mass blood donation during the Blitz, and Arunachalam Muruganantham, known as “Menstrual Man” for his work on sanitary pads for developing countries. She probes the lucrative business of plasma transfusions, in which the US is known as the “OPEC of plasma.” And she looks to the future, as researchers seek to bring synthetic blood to a hospital near you. Spanning science and politics, stories and global epidemics, Nine Pints reveals our life's blood in an entirely new light. Nine Pints was named one of Bill Gates recommended summer reading titles for 2019.

提升的時刻 by 梅琳達˙法蘭琪˙蓋茲 (Melinda French Gates) Book Summary:

全球財力最雄厚的私人基金會--比爾與梅琳達.蓋茲基金會 為什麼讓巴菲特願意捐助300億美元,支持兩性平權? 梅琳達.蓋茲與讀者分享這段令人心碎又充滿啟發的歷程 「我們如何為人類――尤其為女性召喚提升的時刻?因為當你提升女性,也就提升了全人類」 在這本感動又迷人的書中,梅琳達分享她從工作與旅行中認識的人身上所學到的啟發與教訓。在這段旅程中,有件事讓她越來越清楚:如果想要提升一個社會的進步及繁榮,就必須停止壓抑女性。她介紹許多平凡但傑出的女性,並且證明了人際連結的力量。當我們提升別人的勇氣,他們也會提升我們的勇氣。 「我的目標不是讓女性崛起、男性跌落。而是希望男女都從爭奪宰制的地位變成夥伴的狀態。」 梅琳達年輕時不懂女性主義,也不認為自己是女性主義者,生下女兒後便離開微軟回家做全職媽媽,以為理應如此,然後利用零碎時間做一些自家公益基金會的幕後工作。她自認膽小害羞,不喜歡抛頭露面,寧願默默打點事務,而由丈夫對外公開發言。但二十二年後,她毅然從幕後走到台前,為自己也為沒有聲音的婦女發聲。在這本自傳性的書中,梅琳達帶領我們進入她的生活和內心世界,坦誠的告訴我們,在這段期間發生什麼事,她如何和富豪丈夫協商平等關係,又如何從改變自己進而改變世界。 ★ 美國亞馬遜銷售分類榜第一名,滿意度4.7顆星! ★ 蟬聯《紐約時報》即時暢銷榜13週 ★ 《商業周刊》1660期選書 各界信心推薦: 宋怡慧 (作家 / 新北市丹鳳高中圖書館主任) 宋順蓮 (台灣女科技人學會理事長) 陳文茜 (文茜的世界周報主持人) 陳藹玲 (富邦文教基金會執行董事) 一位擁有巨大資源的女性領袖,是如何貼近地球那一端的婦女脈動?如何思考婦女地位?如何聰明的做公益?若你關心婦女地位、關心資源分配、關心提升女性權力、關心公益,這絕對是一本值得你閱讀的書。 ──紀惠容(勵馨基金會執行長) 有時我不免納悶,女性主義的理念能通過人性的殘酷考驗嗎?亦或平等互愛只是可望而不可及的夢想?梅琳達蓋茲2019年出版的《提升的時刻》像適時綻放的美麗花朶,點燃了柳暗花明的新希望。 ──顧燕翎(前婦女新知基金會董事長) 閱讀此書時,如果只看到女性主義的訊息,從而擷取女性力量的養分,不免有些可惜。這也是一本談論苦難和救贖之書。擁有者面對匱乏者,應該具備什麼心態?面對資源匱乏,提供資源是否就能解決問題? ──鄭志凱(矽谷科技創投專家 / 活水社投共同創辦人) 梅琳達.蓋茲花了很多年跟全世界的女性合作。本書是建立女性在所有生活層面被重視、被承認的平等社會的迫切宣言。最重要的,它呼籲團結、接納與連結。我們空前的需要這個訊息。 ──諾貝爾和平獎得主 瑪拉拉.尤薩夫札伊 梅琳達在書中講述她在世界各地工作時所遇到及鼓舞人心的故事,深入挖掘數據,並有力的說明我們需要關注的問題──從童婚到職場上的性別不平等。 ──美國前總統 巴拉克・奧巴馬 這雖然是一個人的故事,卻讓你了解你本來就應該知道的世界──我敢說大多數人都不知道。這是一個絕對會引起轟動的經歷。 ──波克夏·海瑟威董事長 華倫・巴菲特 本書是一份美麗精簡的使命宣言,提出我們必須做什麼才能推動社會前進:繼續提升女性的力量。在每個層面和所有地方,女性都是支撐她們社群的真正基石。 ──喜劇演員、美國《每日秀》主持人 崔佛.諾亞 身為歷史上專注於疫苗的慈善家,梅琳達挺身而出告訴大家,投資女性將有助於解決貧困和不平等問題,這比其他任何解決方案成果更加顯著。 ──演員 艾瑪.華森 梅琳達掏心掏肺的談她從普通公民到社運公眾人物的心路歷程。你會看到她如何推動我們基金會更加專注在為女性增強權力。她分享對於我們婚姻的洞見,我們在工作上走過的平等之路,以及她如何幫身為父親與丈夫的我成長。.......閱讀本書時你會不只一次心碎,但是你會受到更多啟蒙與啟發。 ──微軟公司創辦人 比爾.蓋茲
