A household name for his role in the founding of ubiquitous computer software company Microsoft, Bill Gates is one of the world's great businessmen. Brought up to compete rigorously in all areas of his life, he dropped out of Harvard in 1975 to follow his dream of starting his own firm. He formed "Micro-Soft" and set about coding his way to the top. But creating software language was just the beginning of a journey that would eventually see Gates become the wealthiest man in the world. He not only knew how to develop a product, but was great at selling it too, becoming a figurehead of the staid but booming corporate America. In recent years, Gates turned away from the computer screen to combat injustices in the world, channeling huge amounts of his personal fortune into the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a body whose operations are changing the way the charity sector goes about its business. How to Think Like Bill Gates reveals the key motivations, decisions, and philosophies that made Gates a name synonymous with success. Studying how he honed his business acumen, faced down all competitors, overcame adversity, and stood strong in the face of overwhelming odds, with quotes and passages by and about him, you too can learn to think like Bill Gates.
