Far from Isakson, but better than the Facebook effect :) Look there is a difference between a book and PR, this one is borderline

HASH(0x9e12baa4) out of 5 stars A good easy read with a lot of basic information on google Jan. 16 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
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.

PRO

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

CON

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)

OVERALL

A good read and I enjoyed it. A good place to start if you are interest in understanding Google
HASH(0x9e8f1390) out of 5 stars Brandt does a very good job of reviewing the past and present Nov. 17 2014
By Scott Douglas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Brandt does a very good job of reviewing the past and present, and the good and bad procedures and processes that Google has been and is using to maintain the excitement of a startup and to recruit and keep the "brightest and best" of employees. An excellent book with an insiders view of a very successful company.
HASH(0xa34e9408) out of 5 stars two founders of google Nov. 1 2013
By Tom B - Published on Amazon.com
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.
HASH(0x9e56c894) out of 5 stars An Interesting Success Story with Lessons for Other Businesses Dec 22 2015
By J. Steve Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Helped me to see some of the principles of success that has fueled Google. I especially like their emphasis on workers getting outside their own projects to work on other projects of interest, and the emphasis on small interest groups moving things forward.

HASH(0x9d67fcfc) out of 5 stars The Google Guys: Inside the Brilliant Minds of Google Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin May 17 2012
By Schuenemann - Published on Amazon.com
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
