    Comparing Google to an ordinary business is like comparing a rocket to an Edsel. No academic analysis or bystanders account can capture it. Now Doug Edwards, Employee Number 59, offers the first inside view of Google, giving readers a chance to fully experience the bizarre mix of camaraderie and competition at this phenomenal company. I'm Feeling Lucky captures for the first time the unique, self-invented, yet profoundly important culture of the world's most transformative corporation.

    Story
    If you could sum up I'm Feeling Lucky in three words, what would they be?

    A true insider's view of the genesis point for Google. Doug was close enough to the action to observe and comment but not too close that it affected his objectivity or at least the appearance of objectivity.


    What about Douglas Edwards’s performance did you like?

    Clearly his background as a journalist came through in this book. You could see the effort to present a balanced perspective on any of the issues, even when it cast him in a dimmer light. He has an easy to listen to style.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, once you understood the characters and Google's evolution accelerates, it was hard to put down!
