Bill Gates: Computer Legend
In 1995, Bill Gates launched Microsoft Windows. The king of new technology had masterminded a computer program which promised to change people's lives because it was so simple to use. Windows is now a household name and people all around the world use it every day-- in work and play. This is the story of a computer-mad teenager who'd work through the night on a diet of pizza and Coke. It's about a genius who had enough business know-how to become the head of the multi-billion dollar company, Microsoft, and take on and defeat the "big boys," IBM. Not content to be the richest man in the world, Gates had now formed his own charity and aims to become the largest benefactor in history. This book reveals an extraordinary character who has the knack for being best-- whatever the challenge.
