“A rare glimpse into the mind of a great in­no­va­tor; a chance to see Paul as only his friends have. The fas­ci­nat­ing tale of an or­di­nary Amer­i­can boy’s rise to be­ing one of the rich­est men in his­tory.”

– Car­rie Fisher This mem­oir is from one of the most in­flu­en­tial man in the world, Paul Allen, as named by Time. The co-founder of Microsoft, Paul, was delved into space­ships, science fic­tion movies, sports and gui­tars. But the mem­oir not only re­volves around his per­sonal life, rather it is Paul’s se­lec­tive story telling about the ori­gin of Microsoft.

Paul has shared the jour­ney of ma­te­ri­al­iz­ing ideas with a dis­tinct hu­mour and in­sight. A con­sid­er­able num­ber of sto­ries were pre­vi­ously not shared with the world, in­clud­ing Paul’s ver­sion of Microsoft’s ori­gin and his role in the ad­vent of pri­vate space travel. He has can­didly listed the suc­cess and fail­ure tracks with his fu­ture con­vic­tions. Paul’s con­tri­bu­tions have left their marks on di­verse fields rang­ing from avi­a­tion, science, mu­sic, sports and up to phi­lan­thropy
