There has seldom been a figure so polarising as Bill Gates.
Intelligent and fiercely competitive, he built Microsoft into one of the biggest and most successful companies of our time.
He was a billionaire at 31 and the world’s richest man at 40 - a spot he’s held for sixteen of the last twenty-five years. Then he decided to give it all away.
He has spent the last twenty years ploughing his fortune into global health problems which were largely ignored by the ‘developed’ world since rich people don’t suffer from them. Amongst other achievements, the foundation he set up has been instrumental in halving malaria deaths since 2000.
Brash to his staff and vicious to his competitors, Gates got a reputation for no holds barred competition that made him a hated figure in certain corners of the technology industry.
The company with which he was so completely identified was the repeated target of antitrust investigations by US and EU authorities.
His foundation has been accused of cultural imperialism and Bill himself of playing God, that is when he isn’t being compared to the Antichrist.
There hasn’t been a book that told both sides of the story, until now. Charting his progress from obsessed boy hacker, through super-competitive business mogul to the world’s greatest philanthropist, this is a narrative non-fiction account of Gates’ life.
