Here is the fascinating story of the making of the high-tech business revolution and the birth of the Digital Age. Journalist Jeffrey Young chronicles six decades of unbridled technological innovation, taking you inside today's business empires and introducing you to the dreamers, the schemers, the entrepreneurs, and the inventors who built them, including:

  • Millionaire playboy turned visionary CEO Thomas Watson, Jr.: How he helped pioneer the business computing industry in the early 1950s and made IBM its undisputed master for the next three decades.

  • Fast-talking hippie-entrepreneur Steve Jobs and engineering genius Steve Wozniak: How they went from penniless wireheads to high-tech multimillionaires overnight.

  • Bill Gates and Microsoft: whose talent for turning other people's creative innovations into his own marketplace success.

  • Webs, Networks, and the Internet: How a handful of visionaries turned a Cold War communications system into the global phenomenon called the Internet.

Packed with all the excitement of scientific discovery and nail-biting suspense of entrepreneurial brinksmanship, Forbes Greatest Technology Stories is a must-read for every business professional.
