Diehard Windows and Microsoft fans may want to visit a local bookstore today or hit Amazon to pick up a copy of Nadella's new book, called "Hit Refresh: The Quest to Rediscover Microsoft's Soul and Imagine a Better Future for Everyone." At Windows Central, we didn't get any advanced review copies, so we're not recommending it at this point (though I plan to read it this week), but the story promises to deliver some juicy nuggets, including new details on Nadella's stance on the 2013 acquisition of Nokia, which he apparently resisted.
Here's a quick description of the book, from Nadella:
At the core, Hit Refresh, is about us humans and the unique quality we call empathy, which will become ever more valuable in a world where the torrent of technology will disrupt the status quo like never before.
Our writer Jason Ward recently wrote a related (and timely) story on Nadella and empathy that could serve as a nice entry point to Nadella's book.
And from Microsoft cofounder and former CEO, Bill Gates:
Satya has charted a course for making the most of the opportunities created by technology while also facing up to the hard questions.
Nadella's book is available in digital format for $15.99 on the Kindle Store or via Audible audiobook for about $19.
