Microsoft CEO working on book about transformation, change

June 29, 2016

NEW YORK (AP) — Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is writing a book.

Harper Business, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, announced Wednesday that it had acquired Nadella’s “Hit Refresh” and will release it in fall 2017.

According to Harper, Nadella will combine stories of his “personal journey of transformation” with observations about Microsoft and the need for everyone to find time “for new energy, new ideas, relevance and renewal.” In a statement released through his publisher, Nadella says the book is not a memoir or “how-to” guide, but a story of “change.”

The 48-year-old Nadella succeeded Steve Ballmer as CEO in 2014.
