Bill and Melinda Gates

by Josh Gregory

Part of a Series: A True Book™—Biographies.

Computer scientists. Businesspeople. Philanthropists. Here is the story of two of today’s most influential figures, Bill and Melinda Gates. This book takes readers from the education of young Bill Gates, to the founding of Microsoft, to the meeting of Bill and Melinda—a Microsoft employee—to their present-day charitable foundations. These nonprofits support projects such as college preparation for low-income and minority students as well as HIV and malaria research. The history of computers is also woven into the narrative. Black-and-white and color photographs appear throughout, and statistics, a quiz, reading suggestions, a link to the publisher’s Web site, a glossary, and an index are included.
