Bill Gates—whose vision of the personal computer propelled Microsoft into one of the world's leading companies—astonished the business community in 1996 by abruptly reinventing his entire company around the Internet. In this fully revised and updated edition of his bestseller, The Road Ahead, Gates explains why the Internet has revolutionized not just Microsoft but everything else too—and at a faster pace than even he had anticipated. Gates describes the implications for everybody of a world connected by interactive computer networks, and addressed our most pressing questions.

• How will our lives change?
• What about our children?
• How long will it take?
• What are good opportunities?
• Will our jobs become obsolete?
• How should we prepare?
• What about privacy?

The Road Ahead is Gate's bird's-eye view of the undiscovered territory ahead—an authoritative and thought-provoking guide for the journey.

    " Have to admit, I rushed though all the chapters except the first few.Nothing profound here.Really common -sense.And not very engrossing.First few chapters are semi-autobiographical, so they're the ones really worth reading. "
