The author of this book about the future, Bill Gates, is the Harvard dropout who founded Microsoft based on his vision of a personal computer on every desk and in every home. Focusing on the so-called "information superhighway", Gates describes the breathtaking changes that will affect us all, and how emerging technologies will transform human existence in unprecedented ways. Written in a personal style, free of jargon, this book ushers in the world of tomorrow in broad and confident terms. It debunks certain notions that have gained attention in the media, and makes projections grounded in the realities of today. Gates describes how the tools of the future will change the way we make choices about almost everything, from which toaster we buy to who our friends are and how we spend time with them; from how we earn and invest, to where we live and how we protect our families in an increasingly complicated world.

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. Enhanced by Gates's own comments, this is an instructive and entertaining presentation. B.L.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
