Bill Gates is a renowned and inspirational name in the world of business. Some call him a ruthless billionaire and others a benevolent philanthropist. Bill Gates is popularly known as the ingenious visionary who made a powerful and ineffaceable impact on the development of digital technology in the last 30 years. Lisa Rogak?s Impatient Optimist: Bill Gates In His Own Words presents an in-depth look at the real Bill Gates. Bill Gates became the youngest ever self-made billionaire at the age of 31 in 1987. Today he is known as the former CEO and founder of Microsoft. He has been revered as a business icon for over three decades. Although some of his critics call him tyrannical, he is the one who led one of the biggest revolutions in history by understanding the role software would play in the digital age. Bill Gates retired from Microsoft in 2008, though he is still the non-executive chairman, and took up working full-time at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He devoted all his time to this foundation and soon the world witnessed a kinder and gentler Gates, who was moved by Third World health and educational issues. People from all different strata of society look upon Bill Gates as a role model and get inspired by his words and business strategies. When Gates shifted towards the philanthropic world, his second act became grander than his first one. Impatient Optimist: Bill Gates In His Own Words sheds light on personality by drawing material from the media over the last thirty years. It is a unique and exceptional book that uses direct quotes from the great man himself to portray his character and benevolence to the readers. The book is systematically organized into different categories. The quotes included here elucidate his point of view on numerous issues such as business, philanthropy, technology addiction, Microsoft, money, and most importantly life. Printed Pages: 182.
