I thought this book was very informative and i enjoyed reading it. It follows Bill Gates's life in Seattle, as well as when he was a child. It describes what he had to go through, his college life, and his friendships with other people. I learned a lot about Microsoft and what it took for Bill Gates to become the richest man in the world. It inspired me to work hard and never give up. I recommend this book to other students my age because it is informative and can help you have an insight on what it takes to become successful.
