Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella’s first book “Hit Refresh” will give an account of his personal journey so far, the company’s ongoing transformation, and the coming wave of technological and economic change. Set to hit the stands on September 26, Nadella has penned the book – which carries a foreword by Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates – with the hope that it will inspire people to discover more empathy in their own lives.
“My hope is that it’ll start important conversations and spark new ideas, and that others will share their own hit refresh moments,” Nadella said in a post in LinkedIn. Hit Refresh, according to Nadella, is a set of reflections, ideas and principles on transformation.
“It explores the renaissance of a storied company and the implications of the coming wave of technology – artificial intelligence, mixed reality and quantum computing – which will soon disrupt the status quo, impacting our lives, communities and economies,” he added.
