"You have to be able to say, 'Where is this person coming from?' he says. 'What makes them tick? Why are they excited or frustrated by something that is happening, whether it's about computing or beyond computing?' There's far more to McCracken's outstanding piece. Nadella gave him a close and honest look at both himself and Microsoft, and the result is a fun must-read." —Ben Kerschberg, Forbes
