    The Google Story is the definitive account of the populist media company powered by the world's most advanced technology that in a few short years has revolutionized access to information about everything for everybody everywhere.

    Roger Smith says: "Very Good"
    "Good Story, OK Writer, Bad Narration"
    Overall

    The Google Story is a great story to know and definitely worth listening to, but don't expect the best as far as writing style or narration.

    The writer often switches back-and-forth between Larry and Sergey's first and last names making parts of the story a little hard to follow (as to who's doing what) until you get used to their names. The author also paints a relatively one-sided picture which is heavily Google, Larry and Sergey friendly.

    Also, the narrator over-dramatizes everything which makes the story a little annoying to listen to.

    Other than the above drawbacks, the overall story is excellent.
