I HAVE recommended this book to friends. They would hear me laughing as I heard stories about the early days and I would re-tell them the best I could until I just said
The story of the
No, I enjoyed listening to it over several sittings. In on sitting, I think it might be too much to fully appreciate and enjoy.
A great story, fun tales, and very good value for the book. I'm VERY glad I got this one.
Do no evil. The issue is sticking to your own laws. As the company grows... the companies focus will face hard challenges from investors.
The story is well written and chronicles in detail the rise of google. There are some really good insights on how things happen at google
Great read about a company that is entrenched in everyone’s life. I felt it portrayed Google in fair and balanced light.
I learned a lot about Google, things I hadn't dreamed of. It opens your eyes to what's happening to us, and this is just one brilliant company.
As a person who has limited interest in technology I found this book extremely interesting and well written. Obviously the author has an affinity for the "boys" at Google, but the reporting is pretty objective. When I stop googling long enough to think about what they accomplished it is mind altering. I have recommended this book to absolutely everyone!
This was more interesting than some other examples in this genre (Hsieh's book about Zappos or Employee 59 for example) probably because it was written by an outsider with access to the company, not a founder, former employee or someone with a direct stake in the company. It's interesting to see the development of the algorithm, the inside look at the corporate culture and other aspects of the company that is such a big part of all our lives, whether we like it or not.
I loved the book called "The Google Story." That was good and so was this. Lots of details on literally how Google thinks, works and shapes our lives :) Great title.
Loved the interview at the end with Marisa Myers. I'm a Google fan boy and this book hit the spot. Thanks, Steven Levy :)
