Idea Man : A Memoir by the Co-founder of Microsoft Paperback
by Paul Allen
What's it like to start a revolution? How do you build the biggest tech company in the world? And why do you walk away from it all? Paul Allen co-founded Microsoft. Together he and Bill Gates turned an idea - writing software - into a company and then an entire industry.
