Summary

Gryta and Mann gave me the detailed insight I was looking for into the culture, decisions, and accounting that eventually caught up to GE in a gigantic way," Gates said in his review.According to Gates, out of all the books on his list "Under a White Sky"  tackles humanity's relationship with nature in the most straightforward way.The book covers lots of examples of how humanity has unwittingly changed the environment, and Gates said he read it to get her take on two topics in particular: gene drive, the idea that we can change the way genes are passed on, and geoengineering, which covers methods to try and cool the Earth's temperature."As I've come to expect from Elizabeth's work, she explains gene drive and geoengineering in a compelling and lucid way," Gates said.Kolbert's last book, "The Sixth Extinction," won her a Pulitzer Prize in 2015."The Overstory" is the only novel on Gates' reading list, and he describes it as "one of the most unusual novels I've read in years."The book explores our relationship with trees through nine characters whose stories intertwine.
