    Few companies in history have ever been as successful and as admired as Google, the company that has transformed the Internet and become an indispensable part of our lives. How has Google done it? Veteran technology reporter Steven Levy was granted unprecedented access to the company, and in this revelatory book he takes listeners inside Google headquarters - the Googleplex - to explain how Google works.

    Jeff says: "Great for the stories."

    What did you love best about In the Plex?

    This was a very thorough description of how Google started and grew with fairly in depth details of the various important areas of Google and its milestones.The author had seemingly unfettered access to many Googlers and went on trips around the world with them.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great read or listen if you are interested in Google or hi tech. I highly recommend it.

    John Puller's older brother, Robert, was convicted of treason and national security crimes. His inexplicable escape from prison makes him the most wanted criminal in the country. Some in the government believe that John Puller represents their best chance at capturing Robert alive, and so Puller takes on the burden of bringing his brother in to face justice. But Puller quickly discovers that there are others pursuing his brother, who only see Robert as a traitor and are unconcerned if he survives.

    Kathryn says: "Worth the listen"
    "Great storytelling, weak ending"
    Overall

    The storytelling was great. But the "problem" or bad thing that was supposed to happen seemed to have been changed to something that was topical or happening recently. It didn't seem to fit. But I enjoyed the storytelling other than that.
