Written by Sharon Mentyka

Illustrated by Vivien Mildenberger

Publisher’s Synopsis: Think Smart, Be Fearless tells the inspiring story of Bill Gates, one of America’s most fascinating entrepreneurs, starting from his early years as a precocious, inquisitive child who faced challenges fitting in with his classmates. Young Bill, known as Trey in his family, was a bit of a troublemaker, bored at school and prone to acting out. That all changed in high school with his discovery of the early world of computers. His instincts immediately told him that computers were the future. With the support of his family, who encouraged him to think smart and be fearless, Bill grew to become a technology visionary, who changed the way everyday people interact with computers, and a philanthropist whose inability to see limits is working to reduce poverty and improve global health worldwide.

  • Good Morning,

    I would love to win the book so I can donate it. I work for a church and we partner with our local elementary school to help provide food on weekends, brand new winter gear for students, tech items that the school dept does not provide. We also host a free Breakfast with Santa in December and a Free Easter Egg Hunt. 70 percent of the school’s population is on free lunches. Our newest project will be to collect new books beginning in December and continue until late February. Our goal will be to collect 265 books for the children to be presented during reading week. (One for each student) This free book along with an Amazon gift card would be so helpful. Please consider my entry. Thank you.
