Doug's story was the perspective of a non-engineer that was able to make great contributions to the google brand and culture that it now is. There wasn't a single moment where I was bored. Grab it and enjoy it.
Interesting passages from the inside of a growing technology big one. Gives you a feeling of some things that have been done differently in Google: rely on its own technical excellence, rather than on well known marketing recipes that apply almost everywhere.
Average. There are so many good books.
I just read the biografy on the man who invented the Mine Craft game. That is the closest to this one.
I'm Feeling Lucky is a very good title.
Engaging and funny this memoir kept us entertained from start to finish. It made me love Google even more. Thank You.
The narrator. It's his story. Very likeable guy.
Very funny in places.
The story, the narration - all exceeded my expectations! First impression is that it is a bit slow sorry, and the narrator is not that good,but suddenly I realized how much I love it and must admit that I can not imagine anyone else reading it.
Must read for everyone interested in tech.
It is a great view into how Google was formed and some of the events that we all saw from the outside. I particularly enjoyed that it was a balanced portrayal, not always for and not always against Google. It also provided an interesting view of now popular figures like Marissa Mayer.
An insider's view from someone who is willing to both support and be critical of Google.
EntrepreNerd - Looking for good books on tech, life skills and business
Doug did a great job of narrating and explaining the high tech world of Google in an easy to understand way. There were just so many interesting stories, he kept me coming back for more.
He is an excellent speaker and brought some much needed humor to the subject matter.
It was hard for me to believe I would make it through the entire 16 hours, but it was so interesting, I couldn't stop. And, the ending was superb, alost emotional.
I'd really like someone else to do another book like this detailing the time after Google's IPO.
I would listen again. It is a story everyone can relate to on some level. Starting with pretty much nothing but then not having to live on a budget - yeah, that is something we can relate to.
I feel the most memorable moment was the end when he realized he really was lucky. To be with a company from rock bottom until it is so very successful you don't have to work any longer is a good feeling. The little point of being able to buy a coffee not on sale, great.
I think Larry was my favorite character because he was always in the background.
A walk from life ordinary to life extraordinary
Loved the content and the story was very engaging. Edwards did a decent job reading- his passion came through and unlike many business books, it wasn't at all a boring listen. HOWEVER, i wish i didn't have to hear his tongue clicking, thick with spittle, in some parts! GROSS! Several times i almost put it down because of this-- lucky the story was so good, so i kept listening.
