About the book:

At the end of the millennium Bill Gates must be the subject of more books than any other living individual, and so to make a splash, any book about him has to be different. This certainly is. It is one of a series by Janet Lowe (her other most recent book is called Oprah Winfrey Speaks), and is based on things Gates has said and things that have been said about him in public. The idea is to use quotations to present a portrait of the man and what makes him tick, without making any critical assessment of his character or actions.

Presentationally, the book is simply a collection of snippets--sometimes as many as four on a page--comprising background explanation and a quote from Gates or another. They have been drawn together into themed headings: "The Gatesian Management Style", "The Microsoft Business Model", "Microsoft Mistakes", "Living at the Pinnacle", and so on. Because its source material is taken from the public domain Bill Gates Speaks does not offer any new insights or revelations, but it is still an interesting read, particularly for anyone seeking their first glimpse into the Gates character. --Sandra Vogel
