Bill Gates, the chairman, chief executive officer and cofounder of the Microsoft corporation, is the principal architect of the "information super-highway" that will shape the future. It will affect everyone as well as businesses of every type in ways more pervasive than people recognise. In this book Bill Gates explains the "information super-highway", what it is, what it isn't, how individuals and institutions can prepare for it, and how these emerging technologies will transform human existence in unprecedented ways.

RICK ADAMSON's voiceover credits include industrials and commercials for radio, television, and audiobook recordings, including The Secret and Younger Next Year.

From AudioFile:

For all who have marveled at the rapid advance of computers and their impact on our personal lives, Bill Gates stands out as a visionary. At an age when most students can barely see their own potential, Gates saw the revolutionary possibilities of the silicon chip. John Ottavino gives an enthusiastic presentation of Gates's historical review and predictions for the future of the information superhighway. The abridged text flows clearly and logically. Enhanced by Gates's own comments, this is an instructive and entertaining presentation. B.L.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
