From Library Journal:

This English edition of Ichbiah's Les nouveaux magiciens (1989) (adapted by Knepper) tells the story of Microsoft's founder and self-made billionaire against the background of the U.S. software and computer industry. Gates, a computer genius since childhood, and Paul Allen formed the computer software firm in 1975. Eleven years later, the company went public. The authors describe the personal computer and software industry and roles of leading companies IBM, Apple, Compaq, Lotus, and WordPerfect. The informative appendixes provide a description of versions of DOS; key dates in Microsoft's history; and a glossary of technical terms, people, and companies. Highly recommended to business collections. Libraries building a collection on the computer industry should also purchase Sandra Kurtzig and Tom Parker's recent CEO: Building a $400 Million Company from the Ground Up ( LJ 5/1/91).
