On the surface, Paul English's story resembles that of many successful tech entrepreneurs: awkward software engineer turned billionaire. But author Tracy Kidder's "A Truck Full of Money" goes beyond that stereotype and digs into English's complicated relationship with money and his day-to-day life with bipolar disorder. Nearly 35 years after Kidder's Pulitzer-Prize winning book, "The Soul of A New Machine," examined the world of computer hardware, Forum talks to Kidder about Paul English and the new age of tech entrepreneurs.
