Amazon.de

Love him or loathe him, Mr Microsoft is certainly an influential voice in the modern business world and The Road Ahead is definitely an important addition to any business library. Gates's description of the beginnings of the information age, while somewhat over-emphasizing his own contributions and downplaying those of his competitors, is nonetheless as clear and enlightening as any in print today. Likewise, his view of the digital future--from hardware to software and education to entertainment--should be read and studied by all who use technology in their business today or plan to use it on the road ahead.

Synopsis

Bill Gates, the chairman, chief executive officer and cofounder of the Microsoft corporation, is the principal architect of the "information super-highway" that will shape the future. It will affect everyone as well as businesses of every type in ways more pervasive than people recognise. In this book Bill Gates explains the "information super-highway", what it is, what it isn't, how individuals and institutions can prepare for it, and how these emerging technologies will transform human existence in unprecedented ways.

Format: Taschenbuch
this book is probably the second worst I have ever read. it comes off as a dry, nerdy Microsoft advertisement. Bill Gates may be a business genius, but he cannot write a book! this book is supposed to talk about the future, but instead it has a whole chapter devoted to his new house! (he hopes the first thing you notice when you come in is not the electronic pins he hands out, but his "beautiful" view if the lake outside) he seems to be saying, "look at me, I'm rich!" very nerdy. if you want a book about the future, read 1984 by George Orwell.

As there were 58 reviews when I got here (I may note that the #1 non-fiction best-seller of all-time, "The Road Less Traveled" had only about 11 reviews on its page at the Amazon.com site as of about 2 mo. ago), I trust I'm not doing Mr. Gates the "charity turn" I thought I might be in endorsing his book.
But, as you might guess, I don't do it for him -- but for the rest of us. If you are a normal person (the kind the psychotics so prevalent in the computer industry label "newbies" -- as if that's the kind of appellation a genuine genius would choose as your moniker), this book will provide great value for you at this crucial juncture in history -- when getting up to speed with what computers are, can do, and WILL do in the future, is so germane to living a decent life.
IT USED TO BE SAID THAT "THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSE WHO CAN READ, AND THOSE WHO CANNOT, IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE LIVING AND THE DEAD." While that is likely as true as ever, I would update the axiom to reflect computer literacy. NOT JUST FOR EMPLOYMENT (though, that, too), but FOR YOUR OWN ENJOYMENT of your own life.
Mr. Gates has the right to exist, but is completely beside the point, as is every particular person and every particular thing in the computer world. STOP YOUR LIFE AND BUY A MULTIMEDIA COMPUTER TODAY (as inexpensively as possible, of course -- you'll be astonished at how much value you can get [I picked up the $30 hard-cover of Gates' book for $1.00 (because it had been "updated to ver. 2.0," as it were) at a local Waldenbooks, for example] out of many, many things in the computer world) AND PAY NO MIND TO WHO GETS HOW RICH BECAUSE OF IT! They have recently (with the advent of multimedia) become TOO MAGNIFICENT NOT TO OWN.

Von Bill Butler am 3. März 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
Bill Gates has done tremendous good, whether he intended to or not. And there does seem to be an altruistic streak running through this man's spine. Forget that he is worth $85 billion dollars. You better. As Gates points out constantly in his book, these figures are going to mean less and less as we move into the next century. This book and CD is a good prescription for what Toffler calls "Future Shock". Gates does indeed show you the road ahead, how things may very well be 50 (40[30]) years from now. He does not say that it is good or bad. He does not foerwarn us about getting out of touch with our "inner goodness". He doesn't take any stand! He knows that he is not better than anybody else. But he also knows that he has access to "see" what may very well be ahead. And he is enough of a gent to share this with you and me. I do believe that he sees the whole "Gates Phenomena" as a process. That his shoes would have been filled with someone else's even if he were never born. This also was the case with Thomas Edison. Many were directly behind him. But he wanted to "own" the past. Gates shows no such egomania. His humility is quite refreshing. And the book is really fun reading. Even if you are not a "computer geek", read this book. It will take away a lot of the anxiety that surrounds people who feel "left out of it". After you read it, and if you are computer illiterate, you will feel so much better. Just do it!
