Goodreads co-founder Elizabeth Khuri Chandler talks to billionaire philanthropist Melinda Gates about her new book "The Moment of Lift" and about the books that have shaped her life. Melinda talks about her spiritual journey, the common frustrations she works to overcome, and being willing to show your vulnerabilities as a leader. And she's sounding the alarm about the risks of women being left out of the process of developing AI technologies.   As the co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation she's had a hand in saving millions of lives, through education, health, and vaccination programs.   Her top books are:
