The host, Becky Quick, asked each what they've been reading lately.
Here are their answers:

Gates has a big interest in healthcare (especially internationally), and this book is about exorbitant healthcare costs in the U.S and what can be done about them.

This book is about science, and Munger called it a great achievement.

This is Tim Geithner's forthcoming book. It's about the crisis, and Buffett says it's a must-read for anyone in management.
