Bill Gates (Biography by Jeanne M. LesinskiAfter reading this following book, I understood the life of Bill Gates, Microsoft, and how he became successful. While reading this biography, I enjoyed how the author starts off the story with pictures and factual information about Bill Gates mother, father, and siblings. The biography mainly shows how he mostly fell in love with computers at such a young age. Early in the biography, it states how Bill Gates loved programming computers in the school he attended, and how he programmed a tic-tac-toe game. The biography also talks about how he enjoyed certain subjects in school, how he scored nearly perfect on his SAT, and how he attended Harvard University. During the process of reading this book, it states how Bill Gates craved technology and started off his business so successfully at such a young age. Towards the end of the story, it talks more about his personal life and the success of his business overtime. What I enjoyed mostly about this book was how interesting it was to learn about the personal life of one of the worlds richest men.

In just 25 years, he built a two-man operation into a multibillion-dollar colossus and made himself the richest man in the world somewhere along the way. Yet he accomplished this feat not by inventing new technology, but by taking existing technology, adapting it to a specific market, and then dominating that market through innovative promotion and cunning business savvy.
