    " I borrowed this book from someone and then went and bought myself a copy. It is not so much an insight into the mind of Bill Gates, but the impact of technology on society the future. It gave me a an entirely new perspective on the role of IT in business and the society. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 6/16/2013

    " Nowadays only really interested me in a historical sense of seeing what Gates guessed right and what he missed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ted Way | 3/13/2013

    " It's a great book (full disclosure: written by my future employer), but the only reason I gave it 3 stars is that it's something that was relevant a decade ago. However, it is cool to read books written a while ago and see how accurate it was based on what I know today. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brandon | 2/21/2013

    " Words from the Messiah on business Microsoft & making money from a can do guy. Imagine him running a country. The man they had to make step down as CEO of Microsoft or he probably would be running the country. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ming | 4/10/2012

    " Read this a long time ago and looking at it now, the book has lost much of its shelf life as it dealt with Y2K issues and a lot of business 101 concepts. I know Bill can do better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalia Luneva | 12/16/2011
