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. In this fully revised and updated edition of his bestseller, The Road Ahead, Gates explains why the Internet has revolutionized not just Microsoft but everything else too—and at a faster pace than even he had anticipated. Gates describes the implications for everybody of a world connected by interactive computer networks, and addressed 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 Gate's bird's-eye view of the undiscovered territory ahead—an authoritative and thought-provoking guide for the journey.

For all who have marveled at the rapid advance of computers and their impact on our personal lives, Bill Gates stands out as a visionary. At an age when most students can barely see their own potential, Gates saw the revolutionary possibilities of the silicon chip. John Ottavino gives an enthusiastic presentation of Gates's historical review and predictions for the future of the information superhighway. The abridged text flows clearly and logically.
