I witness Google growth through the years. While I swear by it, I had no inkling of what was going on in the company. It just worked for me and that was enough. However the incredible success of Google had piqued my interest so, that I had to pick this audiobook up.
For those of you who desire to know how Google got started, how it generates its computing power (they use PCs and not servers! millions and millions of them), how Google managed to come up with such a profitable business strategy, and what actually goes on inside the Googleplex, this is a book for you.
Yes there is a little fluff, and most of the info is readily available on the net, but the book does package them all well.
I learned that Google is actually in a war with Microsoft not just on products but for raw talent in recruited the best and brightest next generation knowledge worker. It now makes more sense for me. I'm satisfied that I gave this book a go.
