Think Smart, Be Fearless: A Biography of Bill Gates

by Sharon Mentyka

Think Smart, Be Fearless tells the inspiring story of Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft and one of America’s most fascinating entrepreneurs, starting from his early years as a precocious, inquisitive child who faced challenges fitting in with his classmates. Young Bill was a bit of a troublemaker, bored at school and prone to acting out. That all changed in high school with his discovery of the early world of computers. With the support of his family, who encouraged him to think smart and be fearless, Bill grew to become a technology visionary, changing the way everyday people interact with computers, and a philanthropist whose limitless ability is working to reduce poverty and improve global health worldwide.
