  1. The Man Who Would Be Gates
    Easily the richest man ($6 billion) in California, Oracle C.E.O. Larry Ellison, co-founder of the world's second-largest software company, is Silicon Valley's most notorious playboy and a sportsman of the first rank who flies fighter jets and races world-class sailing boats. But his burning ambition is simple, if na´ve: bring down Bill Gates. As Ellison moves to add Apple Computer to his anti-Microsoft arsenal, Bryan Burrough locates the fragile psyche behind the bravado.
