I have read several books on the Google story and while I enjoyed each, this one seemed to have more “meat.”
Steven Levy did a great job of taking me from the start-up days through to the present. His unprecedented access behind the curtain of the “great and powerful Google,” is eye-opening. Levy doesn’t shirk his responsibility by trading his access for silence concerning Google missteps in social media, China and yes – even information tracking and sharing.
If you like a solid non-fiction book that does a great job of explaining “googliness” and all its passionate drive to be the absolutely best, you will love this. If you come away with a broader understanding of just how big this company is and just how powerful they are, that is not the worst thing either.
