Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Oprah Winfrey, and Mark Zuckerberg all have one thing in common (besides being multi-billionaires).

They read. A lot.

In fact, Bill Gates says that reading is the main way he learns, and Oprah says reading was her path to personal freedom.

99% of content is entertainment, so it can be hard to find the right things to read.

eBooks are a good middleground between frivolous social media posts and dense research papers. They won’t take all your time — but they’ll bring value. If you want to stay on the cutting-edge of AI, then eBooks are a great tool.

Without further ado, here are 7 great AI eBooks.
