Description

Bill Gates, more commonly known as the founder of Microsoft and richest man on the planet for almost two decades, has been defined by most people by the number that represented his wealth. We will not do that here.

We will, instead, look at the man beneath the public persona of mistaken assumptions and biased opinions to reveal what makes the man tick and what makes him do something that had never been done before.

Find out if a number of the prevalent myths about him are true:

  • Did he steal technology?
  • Did he get arrested?
  • What did he initially think of Warren Buffet?

These and a number of lesser-known facts of Bill Gates are presented here in detail with observations and analysis to help you unpack the complex life of a simple man.

Once you see the life he has lead and the skills he brought to the table, you should be able to find the same packet of ingredients within yourself and hopefully make your mark on this world.

We look at his parents and how they influenced his career, we look at how they raised him and the kinds of trouble he got into as a kid.

Bill Gates is a profound man who sees things differently and works at that with an energy that is uncommon. He is a genius by intellect and a highly focused individual who has no patience for sleep and wasting time.

Come on in and take a look at the life of one of the world’s most known individuals.

Narrator is not good

Narrator has problem in his voice. When he says something, sound comes for half of the word. For example he says power, but you listen wer only. Po does not have sound, he says it with air only. You have to figure out if it is power or shower. I listen when I am in gym. In gym I cannot pay minute attention to every words. I want narrator to read aloud and clearly so that whatever he says, directly goes into my brain.

Terrible

I don’t usually leave reviews but after listening to this audiobook I was so disappointed that i believe the current 5 star reviews are very misleading. This book did not have much information on bill gates at all. It was simply the author’s opinion of what makes a good entrepreneur and then a very few miscellaneous examples to show why he feels bill gates has those characteristics. For example bill gates is not afraid of risk because he played poker when he was younger. This is an example of why he was successful. This reads more like a high school book report than a substantive book on bill gates. The book compares bill gates to other CEO’s with supposedly the same attributes and then goes into an autobiography of jack ma from Alibaba. Very disappointed and I would not recommend this book to anyone else.

I can’t listen to this

The quality is so shockingly bad. This is downright unlistenable. It sounds so bad that my eye are watering

Boring

The book is not about Bill Gates...its about the author taking Bill's name and fame and capitalizing on it for his own gain.

The Early Days

This book gives a fascinating insight about Microsoft and how Gates transformed the way we live, learn and play today.
More important is, the book gives us a glimpse of an often misunderstood genius, Bill Gates himself. Listen this book and you'll get the idea what makes him tick. Really, he is not as bad as some people would like us all to believe.

The Insight to the Empire

Even though I typically don't like to listen books that are assigned to me and I am forced to listen this book was just one I could not stop listening. I loved listening about this book. I was able to understand the whole story of how Microsoft was made. This book gives you an insight to who Bill Gates really is.

My thoughts on the book...

I have enjoyed listening this book very much. I definitely recommend this book. This was my first book on Bill Gates and the history of Microsoft, yet I believe this book to be the best on the matter. The authors were not biased one way or the other. The fact that the authors had plainly presented Bill's life and his characters as they were helped me even more to get to know him better. Not only did I learn of Bill Gates and Microsoft, but also I was intrigued to listen about how other technology companies had dealt with Microsoft success.

Great coverage of the early years.

If you want to listen up on Bill Gates, this is definitely the book to start with. The author does a great job balancing Microsoft's successes and failures. This book covers the history of Bill G. up to windows.
