Grade 7 Up—The founder and CEO of Dell Inc. started building and selling computers out of his dorm room when he was a college freshman and went on to be the youngest person ever to run a Fortune 500 company. Friedman follows Dell's career as an innovator in the direct-sales field through his successes and failures, including the scandal in 2006 over faulty lithium-ion batteries that caused the company's laptops to spontaneously combust. The author mentions Dell's colleagues' criticisms of him as aloof and hard to read, but generally the tycoon comes across as energetic and creative, a family man, and a major philanthropist. Color photographs and a career time line are included. This book is better suited to readers interested in business innovation than to those who are curious about computer technology.—Rebecca Donnelly, Loma Colorado Public Library, Rio Rancho, NM
