This is a nonfiction book about Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, who has been running the show since taking over for Steve Ballmer in 2014. It was originally published in 2017 and includes a forward from Bill Gates. It was also a New York Times bestseller and peaked at #4 on the Bestseller's List. Nadella has said all the profits from the book have been donated to nonprofit organizations through Microsoft Philanthropies.
The book covers Nadella's life growing up in India and rising through the ranks. It's also a recap of his attempts to transform Microsoft from a company that was getting too big to a company that is on the leading edge of A.I. development among other things. If you're interested in corporate America, how a huge business can change its trajectory, or just looking for some insight into the tech world you know and love you might enjoy this read. It's very much a "Microsoft really wants you to love it again" sort of book, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
We have talked about Nadella a lot at Windows Central, and we've even seen evidence that many of his changes weren't as cutting edge as his book would have you believe. However, read Nadella's thoughts, and ours, and then decide for yourself. Do you think Microsoft is heading in the right direction as a company?
