Product Description

Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose. —Bill Gates encyclopaedia Britannica describes Bill Gates (born William Henry Gates III) as an ‘American computer programmer, businessman and philanthropist rightly so. However, the man and his achievements are so vast that even a big, fat encyclopaedia would not be enough to document his entire life. In his teenage years, Gates acquired the reputation of being quite a hacker. At thirteen, he hacked his school computer and got himself into a class ‘with a disproportionate number of interesting girls’. then, at fifteen, he hacked the computer of a big Corporation. He has even been arrested. His life took a dramatic turn in 1975 when he decided to drop out of Harvard. Soon after, he and Paul Allen co-founded Microsoft Corporation out of a garage in albuquerque, new Mexico. By the end of the 1980s, Microsoft had become the largest software company in the world. A billionaire since 1986, Gates is currently the second richest man in the world, behind amazon’s Jeff Bezos. This book is about a man who changed not only the way people live and work every day, but also redefined the meaning of ‘giving back to society’ by pledging most of his wealth to charity.
