Starting in 1987, Gates was included in the Forbes list of the world's wealthiest people and was the wealthiest from 1995 to 2007, again in 2009, and has been since 2014. Between 2009 and 2014, his wealth doubled from US$40 billion to more than US$82 billion. Between 2013 and 2014, his wealth increased by US$15 billion. Gates is currently the wealthiest person in the world with a net worth of US$76.4 billion.
Gates is one of the best-known entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution. Gates has been criticized for his business tactics, which have been considered anti-competitive, an opinion that has in some cases been upheld by numerous court rulings. Later in his career Gates pursued a number of philanthropic endeavors, donating large amounts of money to various charitable organizations and scientific research programs through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, established in 2000.

Really This Guy Just Read The Wikipedia
This is the biggest ripoff book on Amazon and Audible. This guy gave the most generic info I’ve ever heard in a book. Seriously I may dispute my credit card purchase.

Good description but lacks detail
This is a short summary of some of Bill Gate's achievements, but it kind of lacks details.
You'd expect a biography to give you insight into the way of thinking of the person biographed.
