Book Description

June 28 2011
How much do you really know about Google's founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin?

The Google Guys skips past the general Google story and focuses on what really drives the company's founders. Richard L. Brandt shows the company as the brainchild of two brilliant individuals and looks at Google's business decisions in light of its founders' ambition and beliefs.

Larry is the main strategist, with business acumen and practical drive, while Sergey is the primary technologist and idealist, with brilliant ideas and strong moral positions. But they work closely together, almost like complementary halves of a single brain.

Through interviews with current and former employees, competitors, partners, and senior Google management, plus conversations with the founders themselves, Brandt demystifies the company while clarifying a number of misconceptions.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good easy read with a lot of basic information on google Jan. 16 2013
By Harry Dresden P.I. - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As an experienced hardware focused engineer I have not followed any of the buzz about google. I have used google for many many years and find the tool useful for doing engineering research and solving technical issues. So reading this book helped me understand much more than I knew about how google is managed and guided.


Easy to read Easy to Understand
Good basic information for those wanting to know about google
Like Google 101


Book did not make me want to work at google (at least the book seems to indicates a youth focused company that does not seek many experience technical people)


A good read and I enjoyed it. A good place to start if you are interest in understanding Google
4.0 out of 5 stars two founders of google Nov. 1 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is interesting to read how Sergey and Larry run google and still get involved with subjects outside of their primary business. You can easily see that these two guys are brilliant. The one negative I had with the book was that it did not go very far into the personal lives of the founders.

By Schuenemann - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
starts promisingly, with its breezy narration of Larry and Sergey's early years, how they came together while in university and how they managed to get two top venture capitalists to back them on their terms to start the mother of all internet companies
