The author of this book about the future, Bill Gates, is the Harvard dropout who founded Microsoft based on his vision of a personal computer on every desk and in every home. Focusing on the so-called "information superhighway", Gates describes the breathtaking changes that will affect us all, and how emerging technologies will transform human existence in unprecedented ways. Written in a personal style, free of jargon, this book ushers in the world of tomorrow in broad and confident terms. It debunks certain notions that have gained attention in the media, and makes projections grounded in the realities of today. Gates describes how the tools of the future will change the way we make choices about almost everything, from which toaster we buy to who our friends are and how we spend time with them; from how we earn and invest, to where we live and how we protect our families in an increasingly complicated world.

RICK ADAMSON's voiceover credits include industrials and commercials for radio, television, and audiobook recordings, including The Secret and Younger Next Year.From AudioFile:
If Bill Gates is right, fascinating surprises are in store for us as technology improves the way we live and work. How about answering the phone from your morning shower while projecting an image of yourself in your best business suit to the caller's screen? The tour of Gates's wired home is intoxicating--this is not just a book for business types and techies. Narrator Adamson is just as excited about these changes as Gates; his enthusiasm and pace aptly project Gates's boyish optimism for the future and all it holds. This clear-voiced view by Adamson is interspersed with audio clips from Gates himself. J.E.G. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
