Description

An intimate behind--the--scenes look into the personal triumphs and tragedies of sixteen famous and infamous industry titans From the garages and kitchen tables across America, the technology entrepreneurs have built great companies, reaped unimaginable wealth, and endured challenges to the very core of their personal beliefs and confidence. Now, Betting It All looks directly into the hearts and minds of sixteen of these extraordinary business people. It strips away the legend and gives readers a true glimpse into the very human side of each entrepreneur--including what motivates them, inspires them, and pushes them to continue in the face of crisis. From Bill Gates, Scott McNealy, and Kim Polese to Steve Wozniak and Larry Ellison, this remarkable book reveals what personal and professional price success brings, along with their controversial views on business and society. Readers will hear how these famous and successful business people stay strong when the inevitable crisis comes.
