Summary
Drawing on more than three decades of quotes and media coverage print, electronic and online this book offers real insight into the man behind the millions. Hailed by most as an ingenious visionary, considered by some to be an unscrupulous monopolist, Bill Gates has had an indelible impact on the growth of digital technology. As founder and former CEO of Microsoft he helped spearhead one of the greatest revolutions in modern history, seizing on the importance of software in the rise of personal computing and becoming in 1987 at the tender age thirty-one the youngest ever self-made billionaire. But Bill Gates' second act has been no less compelling than his first. After leaving Microsoft's day-to-day operations in 2008 to devote himself full-time to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a kinder, gentler Gates began to emerge, one deeply concerned with Third World health issues and educational reform. Essential reading for anyone seeking wisdom from the world's entrepreneur extraordinaire
