    Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to In the Plex the most enjoyable?

    I was extremely enamored with this book. It was amazing how google came to be and the path they took to grow as successful as they did. The wins, losses, and overall decisions that shaped google make this a great read and and quite frankly, a book I never expected to really enjoy.


    Have you listened to any of L. J. Ganser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no
