Impatient Optimist: Bill Gates In His Own Words is a collection of quotes by Bill Gates that reflect his personality and are inspirational for the readers. Summary Of The Book Bill Gates is a renowned and inspirational name in the world of business. Some call him a ruthless billionaire and others a benevolent philanthropist. Bill Gates is popularly known as the ingenious visionary who made a powerful and ineffaceable impact on the development of digital technology in the last 30 years. Lisa Rogak’s Impatient Optimist: Bill Gates In His Own Words presents an in-depth look at the real Bill Gates. Bill Gates became the youngest ever self-made billionaire at the age of 31 in 1987. Today he is known as the former CEO and founder of Microsoft. He has been revered as a business icon for over three decades. Although some of his critics call him tyrannical, he is the one who led one of the biggest revolutions in history by understanding the role software would play in the digital age. Bill Gates retired from Microsoft in 2008, though he is still the non-executive chairman, and took up working full-time at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. He devoted all his time to this foundation and soon the world witnessed a kinder and gentler Gates, who was moved by Third World health and educational issues. People from all different strata of society look upon Bill Gates as a role model and get inspired by his words and business strategies. When Gates shifted towards the philanthropic world, his second act became grander than his first one. Impatient Optimist: Bill Gates In His Own Words sheds light on personality by drawing material from the media over the last thirty years. It is a unique and exceptional book that uses direct quotes from the great man himself to portray his character and benevolence to the readers. The book is systematically organized into different categories. The quotes included here elucidate his point of view on numerous issues such as business, philanthropy, technology addiction, Microsoft, money, and most importantly life.

Bill Gates, the founder and former CEO of Microsoft, has been a revered, and occasionally controversial, worldwide business icon for more than three decades.

Recognized by most as an ingenious visionary, and painted by some as a tyrannical, less-than-scrupulous empire builder, Gates has had an unignorable impact on the growth of digital technology in daily life over the past 30 years. Even his sharpest critics have to acknowledge the obvious: Gates helped spearhead one of the greatest revolutions in modern history by seizing on the importance of software to the rise of the personal computer, along the way turning an arcane, specialized technology into a commonplace tool for the office and home.

Gates has long been ranked as one of the world’s wealthiest men--which gave him a name recognition far greater than that of most CEOs--and businesspeople of all stripes have looked to him as a role model, using his words and business strategies to help create, inspire, and grow their own companies. After he stopped running Microsoft's day-to-day operations in 2008 to devote himself full-time to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a kinder, gentler Gates began to emerge. As a result, people actively involved in the philanthropic world, whether in professional, part-time, or personal capacities, began to develop a new appreciation for the man.

Bill Gates’s second act is no less compelling than his first. And whether you’re interested in his personal life or looking for inspiration to drive you forward in your own business endeavors, Impatient Optimist: Bill Gates in His Own Words has much to offer. As the tech giants who distinguished the turn of the 21st century shape public life in ways that outstrip the efforts of the previous century's titans of industry, we look to figures like Gates for inspiration as one of America's greatest business icons. This book will surely feed the world's curiosity about one of the most important leaders of the digital age.
