Good narration, but poor book

The book was repetitive and vague. No hard hitting data or facts. All generic information that one already knows.

Not what I expected...

The story was repetitive. There was nothing notable in the text. Nothing new revealed. I have heard all of this in interviews or read it in articles. Disappointing.

uninformative, lacks depth

there is nothing original or insightful here. despite the title, there are no business lessons contained in this book, it's just a timeline of events

Not very insightful!

The story is very superficial and explains what most entrepreneurs know about him. It is also very repetitive, it mentions many times the same things a tiering way. It is ment to inspire and the sad-dragged voice does not do the job, it should be passionate, alive and thriving.
All in all if you look for a basic view from an author about Gate's life, it is fair!
