    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.

    Lynn says: "A Rip Snorting Story"
    "Interesting listening"
    Overall

    The author seemed really have deep knowledge about Google. But I can clearly see his bias on Google - he really likes Google. The narrator was perfect, he surely sounded interested in what the book is about and passionate. As far as you don't take it word for word from the author, this book is an excellent book to know better about what Google is and where it is going.

    The Myth: If you get into a good college, study hard, and graduate with excellent grades, you will be pretty much set for a successful career. The Reality: The biggest thing you won't learn in college is how to succeed professionally. Some of the smartest, most successful people in the country didn't finish college. None of them learned their most critical skills in an institution of higher education. And like them, most of what you'll need to learn to be successful you'll have to learn on your own, outside of school.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not really sure.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the stories in the introduction talked about a hiring process, which involved a high school dropout and a Harvard MBA graduate as candidate. The position was a $10/hour web data entry position. If you have any common sense, you know who got the job.The author bashed the emptiness of the MBA's education. Where's the street smart the book's talking about of trying to hire a Harvard MBA for web data entry?

    In this audio edition of the totally revised underground best seller, The E-Myth, Michael Gerber dispels the myths surrounding starting your own business and shows how commonplace assumptions can get in the way of running a business. He walks you through the steps in the life of a business, from entrepreneurial infancy, through adolescent growing pains, to the mature entrepreneurial perspective, the guiding light of all businesses that succeed.

    Christopher Burbridge says: "Life Changing, I Gotta Say"
    "It's an eye opener."
    Overall

    The book delivers a single important idea and delivers it well - get your business organized from day one and work on your business not in your business. Highly recommended.
