Description

The present book gives a detailed narrative of the life of Bill Gates, chairman of Microsoft Corporation, the worldwide leader in software services and solutions that 
help people and business organisations realize their full potential. It is an account of his journey of life and the way he changed the times for the world by recognising the value of computer as a tool on every office desktop and in every home. Under Bill Gates’ leadership, Microsoft’s mission was to continually advance and improve software technology and to make it easier, more cost-effective and more user-friendly.
In addition to his love for computers and software, Bill Gates founded Corbis, a comprehensive digital archive of art and photography from public and private collections around the globe. 
Apart from Bill Gates’ genius at computer software, he and his wife are known for their $28.8 worth Bill Gates’ Foundation to support philanthropic initiatives in the areas of global health and learning. A must read biography for youth to derive inspiration from this living legend.
