save your money, this book is a dissapointment
first off, the writing style -- it seems to be aimed towards a teenage demographic at best
secondly, the book dimensions are small and awkard to hold in your hands and read
surely there is a better book about Gates

Great content, horrible writing Oct. 5 2010
By Brian - Published on Amazon.com
Looking for a good book on what makes Bill Gates tick, I choose this one as it gives a nicely broken up dissection of the characteristics that made Bill who he is. However, despite being a quick read, the sentence structure and word choice is often so odd, that I began to think that English must not be the author's primary language. The content is what saves it, if anything. It gives a great deal of insight to how and why Bill Gates carried out his business and life the way he did, and also how his upbringing affected him and his psychology towards being the tenacious pitbull in business that he became. Overall, not a terrible book, but could be a hell of a lot better if the content was rewritten and revised. The book "Elements of Style" would help this author massively.

Both my husband both read this book which we both felt was well written, and. Gave us a good insight to the way Microsoft were building their business. Thank you Elaine Oxford.
