Looking for some reading material to pore through later in the Fall? Satya Nadella’s book, titled Hit Refresh: The Quest to Rediscover Microsoft’s Soul and Imagine a Better Future for Everyone, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.
Here’s the description of the book, as told by Amazon’s listing:
As told by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Hit Refresh is the story of corporate change and reinvention as well as the story of Nadella’s personal journey, one that is taking place today inside a storied technology company, and one that is coming in all of our lives as intelligent machines become more ambient and more ubiquitous. It’s about how people, organizations and societies can and must hit refresh—transform—in their persistent quest for new energy, new ideas, relevance and renewal. At the core, it’s about us humans and our unique qualities, like empathy, which will become ever more valuable in a world where the torrent of technology will disrupt like never before. As much a humanist as a technologist, Nadella defines his mission and that of the company he leads as empowering every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
If you’ve been following Microsoft for a while, the book promises to be an interesting read regarding the direction of the company since Nadella took the reigns. Microsoft’s shift towards a humanist, empowering personality over the years has been very apparent, and having some documentation about it is very welcome.
If you’re interested in pre-ordering, you can place your order now for $15.99 on Kindle, and about $20 in hardcover.
