  • In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 52 mins)
    • By Steven Levy
    • Narrated By L. J. Ganser
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    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."
    "Became a chore Very Soon On"
    What disappointed you about In the Plex?

    It was very Name and Date heavy... It got in the way of the story... All I heard was a blur of names of people who worked there or attended certain events...

    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Any additional comments?

    absolutely worth listening to, Some of the information in here was new to me, even as a seasoned reader of effective communication books.
    My only complaint is that I feel there was a lot more room for expansion on the topics... I believe her knowledge is far from tapped out and I'd love to hear more

    "Facts without too much heresay"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    He discusses what the research says... what he think is secondary

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, even at 1.5x this is a monster book/course at 36 hours... Has taken me a month of intermittent listening

    Any additional comments?

    I love his ability to quote real studies... whilst I have not looked into all of them, I have read up about a couple and his take away matched my own.
