It's a long story and sometimes a bit tedious but truly interesting and intriguing. The narrator was sometimes hard to understand and there were many references to names mentioned earlier in the book which were impossible to track per audio vs print version. I may listen to the whole thing again. Just like the Steve Jobs book, it provided a good review of how the technology developed at Google and both clarified and improved my perceptions of their mission and goals.
Average at best
This is the only book I've tried of his, and I wouldn't judge anyone just off of one book. I would give him another try.
It's great to be informed about that most ubiquitous technology that is in sooo much of our mobile/online lives.
I'm not a techie, but it's good to know of Google's philosophy & the founders' thinking as time rolls on.
And 3 cheers for Maria Montessori.
Here in Australia there are just a few Montessori junior high schools.
I believe a Montessori high school experience is sooo good for shaping & rounding young teens, the benefits compared to a regular high school curriculum are immeasurable !
I loved listening to this book. The author takes you on a fun journey of the things that happen behind the scene. The author provides interesting details behind every important step taken by the company.
Fascinating, intriguing, enlightening
The history of how Google began, the transition from being a start-up to the huge corporation they are today
The Chinese struggle, the story of Android
Neither, but it was very intersting
This is an amazing story of how Google initiated and expanded it's work
This gives the power of thinking big.
He is narrating the book with emotions.
I was amazed by the vision behind key players of Google.
If you are interested in Internet and Information technology this book gives a nice insight about search mechanisms.
If you have any interest in google or learn more about Silicon Valley you must listen to this book!
The time line of the company
How the founders of Google took their thesis out to the people
Inspirational, motivating and insightful.
I liked the backstory behind the development of some of the most powerful aspects of Google's business (some intentional some by coincidence).
The development and evolution of the search algorithm.
The only extreme reaction would be the degree to which it inspired me to think differently about how I approach problems in my business.
Well worth the listen for anyone fascinated by Google, technology or business growth and culture.
Yes. It's entertaining, and provides a good insight in the way Google people thinks.
I'm an IT guy, not particularly a lover for Google (or Microsoft or Apple) but it's a very interesting book.
