BookPal Launches E-Book Distribution With Bill Gates' Recommended Read

Leading Bulk Bookseller Distributes Popular Business Adventures Book

IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/14 -- Bill Gates has shared his favorite business book with the world. Now, anyone can share Business Adventures by John Brooks with customers, colleagues, employees and friends. BookPal -- a Southern California-based enterprise bookseller serving the needs of businesses, schools and government entities with simple and efficient quantity pricing, ordering and delivery, and customization services -- is now offering e-book copies of Business Adventures in bulk.

Originally published in 1969 and long out of print, an e-book edition of this title was published by Open Road Integrated Media on July 8. Not long after, Gates praised Business Adventures in the Wall Street Journal and to all of his fans on social media. His review propelled the title onto the New York Times and Wall Street Journal best sellers list and into the top 20 on Amazon. Open Road will also release a paperback edition Aug. 12. As one of the leading wholesaler e-book distributors, BookPal is offering this business book in bulk.

BookPal customers can easily distribute Gates' favorite business title on iPhone, iPad and Android devices through its new e-book platform and the BookPal Reader app -- making it easy to download, read and even interact with their books quickly and conveniently. The paperback edition of Business Adventures is currently available for pre-order on BookPal's website.

In the book, Brooks -- a longtime contributor to The New Yorker -- recounts 12 tales of corporate and financial life in the 1960s, one of the most volatile decades in history. Business Adventures reminds readers that what it takes to run a successful business has changed over the years, but what it takes to create value in a business has not.

"It's an honor to be able to provide such an iconic book to our customers," says Tony DiCostanzo, president of BookPal. "We applaud Mr. Gates' choice and his appreciation of the fact that good business advice never goes out of style."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things').

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
