Yes, both Gates and Zuckerburg dropped out of Ivy League school, also known as the criminal factory. Then they both predominantly hired Ivy League grads and top b-school grads - - so you'd better either be a Gates or Zuckerburg, with their connections. Now Zuckerburg, and the occasional Microsoft person, attends the international banker forum called the Bilderbergers. Hurray, hurray! There, perhaps they learn ever greater criminal techniques and such. Reverse engineer the achievements of others, steal operating systems, use close relatives to get your financing (preferably have an uncle who is a vice-president of a bank, and so on and so on). Yes, real rags-to-riches types exist (albeit somewhat rarely) - - case in point, Joshua Levine (, but he came in contact with the right people at the right time - - and that's where the random factor comes in!

A great read. The author gathers a number of different sources to give you some valuable ideas and much food for thought. Just finished reading it today - I must say it left me feeling very inspired. Recommended.

Thanks PatEe! Looks like it's not available in my library system, and I won't go out of my way to find it!

Just another self proclaimed genius, who hasn't reached adulthood yet, who is gutsy and made a fortune.
Don't bother unless you're into smooth marketing and sell, sell, sell, sell, sell......
