Just a History Lesson

Narrator was dry and seemingly uninterested in the subject. Practically all he said was already well covered in the news and literature of today. The text gave very little insight into "Who is Bill Gates the Man "
He could be a Poster Child of Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich," nearly a century past, yet this book does not deliver the QED Bill Gates.
Do it over and be original about it.
Still searching for "Bill Gates."

Term paper level information

This work seems to be at a graduate school paper level.

Perhaps I am missing the value. If so, that is on me.

Well written but short.

Insightful and informative but definitely not a full history. I enjoyed all the history of Microsoft as a business that part was very informative.

Left me wanting more

This was somewhat of a data dump on Bill Gates, summarized by another person. It included some history, famous quotes, and other tales of Gates' successes and failures. It left me wanting to read another version with more direct input from Gates himself.

Highly recommended

David did a great job at bringing this book alive. I have always been fascinated with Microsoft and Mr Gates. Wowww what a journey he had. his persistence and dedication in making Microsoft the company it is today is very inspiring. Best moments is knowing about his negotiation skills with IBM - would have loved to have been a fly in the room. Also his philanthropist work and his porch collection. outstanding listening
