Bill Gates Speaks: Insight from the World's Greatest Entrepreneur


The world listens when Bill Gates speaks

"I'm not competent to judge his technical ability, but I regard his business savvy as extraordinary. If Bill had started a hot dog stand, he would have become the hot dog king of the world."-Warren Buffett

"It is still possible to be a Vanderbilt, an Astor, a Rockefeller. You can still do that, you can be Bill Gates."-David Geffen

"Love him or hate him, but you can't ignore him."-Fortune

Here is just a sample of what you'll find inside:

"My parents weren't all that excited about their son announcing he was dropping out of a fine university to start a business in something almost nobody had heard of called 'microcomputers.'"

"Our slogan from the very beginning was 'a computer on every desk and in every home.'"
