Fascinating, controversial, and known as much for his business savvy as his technical skills, Bill Gates set the standard for how software is developed and distributed. This is the story of the computer pioneer and visionary, who with childhood friend Paul Allen, created the foremost technology company of the technology age. "Bill Gates: A Biography" follows the life of Gates from his Seattle childhood and his early years as a program developer to the founding of Microsoft and its expansion into the personal computer, Internet browsing, and gaming markets, to his current role as one of the world's most generous philanthropists. The book examines a number of controversial issues surrounding Gates, including his rivalry with Apple's Steve Jobs, accusations of unfair business practices, and the landmark antitrust suit against Microsoft.
