    Comparing Google to an ordinary business is like comparing a rocket to an Edsel. No academic analysis or bystanders account can capture it. Now Doug Edwards, Employee Number 59, offers the first inside view of Google, giving readers a chance to fully experience the bizarre mix of camaraderie and competition at this phenomenal company. I'm Feeling Lucky captures for the first time the unique, self-invented, yet profoundly important culture of the world's most transformative corporation.

    Story

    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.

    "In the summer of 1991 I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother who loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen. For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation. On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I dont think of myself as a victim. I survived...."

    This is a book about getting rich. It's different from any other book on the subject because Felix Dennis made himself rich. Very rich indeed. As a matter of fact, he is one of the richest self-made men in Britain. How to Get Rich doesn't pull any punches, and shows that the highway to riches is littered with pitfalls, heartbreak, and obstacles. But for those with the drive and determination to try, this book provides a witty and authoritative road map.

    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.
