Format: Paperback
This book is a great book. It is a condensed version of his life... Instead of reading too much into boring details you get the quick fast pace version in a great, easy to read novel. The author has obviously done great research of his subject. Do not listen to these other reviews which are obviously from people who hate Bill Gates. Below you will find my summary and analysis of this book:
Bill Gates is probably one of the smartest and most successful men of our time, maybe of all time. This book is the summary of Bill Gates' path to success and the history of how our society became dependant on computers and of course Microsoft. How did Bill Gates become the richest man ever know? What Challenges did he face? All is revealed about the man behind Microsoft, the company that changed how we live.
Bill Gates is a genius that is probably smarter than anyone you will ever know. Here is the story that will show you his inner workings. Interesting combinations of unique personality characteristics that this man has is what has made him the success he is and is explained to you in this story.

This is an adequate book - a condensed history of Bill Gate's professional career. It is easy to read and understand. It is obvious the author did their research in preparing this novel-like biography. However, the copy I received had a superfluous chapter. While the book did an excellent job of detailing Gates' professional accomplishments, it merely referred to his personal life and philanthropy, which I was most interested in. Nonetheless, it gave an excellent history to Bill Gates' life up until the late nineties.

I thought it would be more about the life of Bill Gates, not technology mumbo jumbo... boring to say the least. This is not a. Biography.

This is the best book about the life of Bill Gates I've read so far. I would out this on par with top Steve Jobs-related books designed for readers to learn from, in terms of business experience and marketing savvy. Really well done.

This is an above average biography of Bill Gates, seems fairly accurate and captures the spirit of a man who is undoubtedly a force in modern technology.
