“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
