Melinda and I got a kick out of doing our first autocomplete challenge. We answered some of the internet’s most asked questions, along with a few from our Annual Letter.

Although we see a lot of disease and poverty in our travels—and many other big problems that need to be solved—we also see the best of humanity. To learn more about what fuels our optimism, I encourage you to read our 10th Annual Letter. [link in bio]

If you could ask Melinda and me anything, what would you want to know? We’ll answer a few of your questions live on Facebook with Lin-Manuel Miranda at Hunter College next Tuesday.

For years, I’ve been saying Steven Pinker’s “The Better Angels of Our Nature” was the best book I’d read in a decade. I’m going to stop talking up “Better Angels” so much, because Pinker has managed to top himself. His new book, “Enlightenment Now” is not only the best book Pinker’s ever written. It’s my new favorite book of all time. #bookstagram

I sat down with Steven Pinker and Philip Galanes from The New York Times to talk about Steven’s upcoming book, “Enlightenment Now.” I came away from the conversation with a renewed sense of optimism about the world.

Malala carried the team.

Playing tennis with @rogerfederer was one of my favorite parts of 2017. I can’t wait to team up with him again on March 5th for the next Match for Africa.

How did India wipe out polio? The answer can be found in the Indian state of Bihar -- home to one of the poorest castes in India, the Musahar. Vaccinating the Musahar, and other people living in remote areas, was one of the final obstacles India faced in its campaign to wipe out the disease. In 2010, the government deployed more than 2 million polio workers to reach every child. They covered every speck of the country, and by 2014, India achieved its goal of being polio free, an incredible feat.

I first met Mohammed Nassir when he was only two weeks old. Today, he’s five years old and thriving—a testament to the incredible progress we’ve made to reduce child mortality in Ethiopia.

I was excited when @time asked me to serve as its first guest editor. The issue is filled with stories from some of the people I respect most about what makes them optimistic. I hope you enjoy learning surprising facts about the state of the world, and meeting heroes who are saving lives every day.

I’ve enjoyed getting to know the @instagram community this year. Thank you for welcoming me! Before I sign off for the holidays, I wanted to share one of my favorite photos of St. Nick and me. I wish I could remember what I asked for… #TBT

These books took me back in time, around the world, and into the future. #ReadtoLead
