Featured & Cover Bill Gates to Release Memoir Source Code in 2024 Revealing Untold Stories of His Journey

Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft, is set to release a new book, this time a memoir titled “Source Code.” This upcoming publication, scheduled for February next year, will explore the relationships, lessons, and experiences that have shaped Gates’ life. The memoir will chronicle his journey from childhood through his departure from Harvard and the co-founding of Microsoft with Paul Allen.

In a blog post, Gates elaborated on his motivations for writing the memoir. “I’ve been in the public eye since my early twenties, but much of my life before then isn’t well known. Over the years, I’ve often been asked about my upbringing, my time at Harvard, and co-founding the company. Those questions made me realize that people might be interested in my journey and the factors that influenced it,” he wrote.

Gates, now 68, described the memoir as his “origin story.” He intends to delve into the more challenging aspects of his early life, which have significantly influenced his development. The book will discuss his feelings of being a misfit during his childhood, his rebellious teenage years when he clashed with his parents, the profound impact of losing a close person suddenly, and his near-expulsion from college.

“Source Code” will also illuminate Gates’ difficult choice to leave Harvard to pursue a then-nonexistent industry. This pivotal decision was a gamble that ultimately paid off, leading to the creation of Microsoft and the transformation of the tech industry.

The memoir will highlight the stories of those who believed in Gates, challenged him to grow, and helped him turn his unique traits into strengths. These individuals played a crucial role in his personal and professional development, contributing to his success.

As reported by Forbes, Gates’ net worth stands at $129.7 billion. He was married to Melinda Gates for 27 years before they announced their separation in May 2021 on X (formerly Twitter). Despite their separation, they continue to co-chair the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Gates has donated over $59 billion to the foundation, including a $20 billion gift announced in July 2022.
