Bill-Gates-Has-a-New-Favorite-Book

We’ve mentioned a handful of books Bill Gates has recommended in the past, a collection meant to inspire and challenge those of us looking to put our stamp on this world. Well, if you’ve made your way through the laundry list of reads the former Microsoft man put forth, consider his latest recommendation, which just so happens to be his new favorite book of all time. Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress, which can be pre-ordered now, is Gates’s new favorite book. He made the remarks on his site, explaining that the book uses historic trends to chart progress and to show when humanity has been at its best. That means this isn’t some frou-frou meditation on what it means to be good; it’s a deep dive into why certain things lead us to be good. It will also make you believe in the world again if you’ve lost hope. Our pre-order is in already.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
