In this book, he mentioned very pleasing details about the Microsoft and US government.

In the book, Smith shared how much dislike Huawei trade ban from the US. Though the book also had some interesting things shared like Taylor swift who sued Microsoft. But the most important things which he shared is that a trump advisor has approached him for spying other countries. However, Smith has denied it not because they foresee it would have a very bad effect on the company later on.

He said that he was also questioned that being an American company why the company is not ready to help the US government. While telling about it, he further said that:

I pointed out that Trump Hotels had just opened a new property in the Middle East as well as down the street on Pennsylvania Avenue. Are these hotels going to spy on people from other countries who stay there? It doesn’t seem like it would be good for the family business.

Although the company had denied spying on other governments, Smith said that the company has helped American intelligence to deal with hacking incidents keeping in view the national cause. But a very dark secret is revealed about Trump which is not only unethical but also reveals how a country is using its platforms to spy other countries.
