Signed Paul Allen: "Idea Man"
“Each failure contains the seeds of your next success - if you are willing to learn from it.” Paul Allen
Idea Man: A Memoir by the Cofounder of Microsoft (2011) is the New York Times bestselling memoir by Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen. Published in 2011 by Portfolio, a Penguin Group imprint, the book recounts how Allen became enamored with computers at an early age, conceived the idea for Microsoft, recruited his friend Bill Gates to join him, and launched what would become the world’s most successful software company.
The book, reveals the often conflicted partnership between Allen and Gates, and explores Allen's business and creative ventures following his 1983 departure from Microsoft, including his involvement in SpaceShipOne, his purchase of the Portland Trailblazers and Seattle Seahawks, his passion for music, and his ongoing support for scientific research.
Described by critics as candid, profound and incendiary, Idea Man is a true story of ambition and ideas made real.
