Publisher's Summary

Bill Gates, whose vision of the personal computer propelled Microsoft into one of the world's leading companies, astonished the business community in 1996 by abruptly reinventing his entire company around the Internet.

Gates explains why the Internet has revolutionized not just Microsoft but everything else too - and at a faster pace than even he had anticipated. He describes the implications for everybody of a world connected by interactive computer networks and addresses our most pressing questions.

  • How will our lives change?
  • What about our children?
  • How long will it take?
  • What are good opportunities?
  • Will our jobs become obsolete?
  • How should we prepare?
  • What about privacy?

    Clear-eyed, candid, and ultimately reassuring, Gates shows how the new tools of the Information Age are transforming forever the way we buy, work, learn, communicate, and have fun together.

    The Road Ahead is Gates' bird's-eye view of the undiscovered territory ahead - an authoritative and thought-provoking guide for the journey.
