The Road Ahead


Description for THE ROAD AHEAD by Bill Gates with Nathan Myhrvold and Peter Rinearson:

Welcome to THE ROAD AHEAD. We have all been bombarded by the seemingly endless hype about the information highway and the coming age of technology. Now, Bill Gates--- who built Microsoft into one of the most successful companies in the world---gives us his vision of what the future holds for us. THE ROAD AHEAD is his bird's-eye view of the undiscovered territory on the information highway---an authoritative, thought-provoking, and very readable travel guide for the journey.

In this optimistic and refreshingly realistic book, Gates looks ahead to show how the emerging technologies of the digital age will transform all our lives. As he says, we are on the brink of a new revolution, and crossing a technology threshold that will forever change the way we buy, work, learn, and communicate with each other. In THE ROAD AHEAD, Gates takes us back to when he chose to drop out of Harvard to start his own software company in order to participate in the rise of personal computer he foresaw. Just as the personal computer revolutionized the way we work, the tools of the information age---which are , even now, becoming everyday reality---will tranform the way we make choices about almost everything.

This also comes with an interactive CD-ROM.
