    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.

    Story

    Being in the SEO world, to say Google is everything is an understatement. The story of Google's rise to the top is a great one. I also really liked the not-so-good stories of Google and how some of their decisions eventually came back to haunt them.

    Story
    (10335)

    Based on more than 40 interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

    Story

    I loved this audiobook! I listened to it during my daily run. One thing I kept waiting for was how Jobs became a good person. I was surprised to hear how he had no redeeming qualities as a person. Yes, he was a great innovator, but he was an awful person.

    Which brings me to ask- is it possible to be a good person and still be able to push your people to be at their best all the time?
