By his early thirties, Paul Allen was a world-famous billionaire-and that was just the beginning. In 2007 and 2008, Time named Paul Allen, the cofounder of Microsoft, one of the hundred most influential people in the world. Since he made his fortune, his impact has been felt in science, technology, business, medicine, sports, music, and philanthropy. His passion, curiosity, and intellectual rigor-combined with the resources to launch and support new initiatives-have literally changed the world. In 2009 Allen discovered that he had lymphoma, lending urgency to his desire to share his story for the first time. In this classic memoir, Allen explains how he has solved problems, what he's learned from his many endeavors-both the triumphs and the failures-and his compelling vision for the future. He reflects candidly on an extraordinary life. The book also features previously untold stories about everything from the true origins of Microsoft to Allen's role in the dawn of private space travel (with SpaceShipOne) and in discoveries at the frontiers of brain science. With honesty, humor, and insight, Allen tells the story of a life of ideas made real.

If you have an interest in things entrepreneurial and wonder if you have what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur, then this book is written for you. Authors Bill Bolton and John Thompson offer a unique focus, seeing everything through the eyes of the entrepreneur. This refreshed third edition is split into two fascinating parts. Part I builds an understanding of the entrepreneur as a person based on the key factors of talent and temperament - a unique framework for understanding and exploiting entrepreneurial opportunities. The process of starting and growing a business and the infrastructure and environment in which the entrepreneur has to operate, are described in detail. Part II tells the stories of famous entrepreneurs including classic figures such as Henry Ford, through to social entrepreneurs and even anti-social entrepreneurs such as Al Capone! This insightful, empirically based, original take on the entrepreneur, and thereby entrepreneurship, provides students with a new and challenging way into the subject.

Some people are skeptical about religion. Others about politics. And still others about romance. But what about those who sniff out pure BS on just about everything? Now they have the only resource they'll ever need to guide them through an irreverent look at the "big questions" that have intrigued all of mankind for centuries: thought-provoking inquiries from "What's the Worst Country in the World?" to "Can I Predict When I Will Die?" and everything in between. The Skeptic's Handbook pulls no punches, and no topic is off limits. But rather than offend, it simply makes you laugh as you realize that ultimately the dumbest thing we can do is to take life too seriously. Why miss out on the absurdity of it all, when that can be such a big part of the fun? Filled with one-page reflections, each designed to answer a "profound" question (such as "Are There Any Jews in Mongolia?"), this indispensable resource will leave you marveling at the foolish nonsense of a world that somehow manages to function despite the often bizarre machinations of a species known as homo sapiens. Laughter really can sometimes be the best medicine...though a hard-core skeptic will be quick to point out that medication is just as likely to kill you.
