Douglas Edwards neither puffs himself up, or puts himself down through this book, and he neither sucks up to Larry and Sergey or demeans them, he just puts it out there humourously and seemingly truthfully about what happened. The beginning when he first started at Google seemed to take forever and it was all about him and his experience but later on it gets into the nitty gritty elements about how Google made certain decisions which is very interesting. I like and admire Larry and Sergey more now and can empathise with them, they would certainly be square pegs in round holes if they had to work for anyone, whereas Douglas quite happily admits that he could not be the entrepreneurs that they are. Douglas is witty, clever, a great narrator and is a very good writer. It's quite a long audio book and I listen to about an hour a day as I walk the dog so it feels like I've been absorbed by Google for weeks now, but it has been worth it. Bring on more like this one! It deserves to do very well.
You've been so honest and open, I hope you now have a very happy life, you're so sweet.
Awesome audio book - best listened to than read - I used to apply the "What would Richard Branson do now" to my thinking, now I've changed to Felix Dennis, he's honest and funny.
