Reviews
"In this thoughtful debut, the Indian-born Nadella tells the story of his personal life and his work as a change-making leader, and he explains the coming importance of machine intelligence. The author emerges as a modest, likable individual from an accomplished family... A valuable blueprint for techies and others in a culture-change state of mind."--Kirkus Reviews
