An incredible story of ingenuity. Makes me wish I'd thought of it in the early days of the internet.

Recently I pruchased this book expecting most of the secrets if not all to be disclosed on how did google achieve such great heights over a decade! And it didnt let me down as this book highlights how a bunch of determined grads did something which changed the world around us and mind you nothing was planned they just grabbed each and every opportunity to achieve an edge over competitors. It explains their childhood which had a vital role to play in their attitude towards the project which became a multi billion dollor company. The only reason I am giving 4* is they are just trying to potray being 100% good...no doubt thy are better off from other companies but their strategy itself is making money and also it becomes a bit boring at the end

Overall good read especially for those curious about googlonomics, how they make money and why are they more succesful than other companies.

Very interesting stuff on Google - I haven't actually finished the book, I'm halfway through but so far, I love it. The book is written in a documentary style and it's a great read.

This book seems very outdated now. It is also written in a style which puts the author in the fanboy category.

Sure this book gives you the facts where the author knows them but with Larry and Sergey well known for not often giving interviews or much away there really isnt much you couldnt find with a bit of good web research. The biggest disappointment is that book is written in such a boring and uninvolving way with zero entertainment value. Has to be one of the worst books I have ever read!
