Let me start with one aspect of this book that can make a big difference on how you perceive it. I think it is very important to try and forget who the author is. So, before you start reading this book, please try to ignore that it’s written by Bill Gates. Unlike Steve Jobs, who was and still is worshipped by many, Bill Gates kind of got more of a we-hate-you fan club. And there are a lot of reviews condemning this book just based on the fact that he is the author – even worse, based on some incorrect statements, it seems that many of them did not even read it, but just assumed it’s bad/wrong because it’s from Gates. That is a very sad thing because it’s actually worth reading.
