This is a must read for anyone who wants to truly understand Google. Their struggle and why they do what they do is so interesting. There's a lot of high level knowledge in this book that I've adopted into my work ethic. Now all I need is a copy of their OKR and apply it to everything!

More of a "20/20" investigation of Google than anything else. Does assume you have the name familiarity that he does which can get difficult to follow at times.
20 hours is a long time to explain only a decade, and there is some redundancy.
The stories, are excellent. Steven obviously had an "all access" path in Google. If you have any questions about this company, or consider them on any level, there is information in this you'll be excited to hear.

This is a good listen if you’re interested in Google and Silicon Valley in general. A good accompaniment to Jobs autobiography I think.
The narrator took a bit to get used to but in the end I found it easy to listen to him.

I loved this book. It showed how seemingly small decisions made when starting up a company can shape its whole culture and direction. And how this is challenged when they try to become a 'big' company. Well researched, and excellent narration. Recommended.

No longer will I go and do a Google search again without feeling like someone is watching me! An insightful book on the data collection and the value of the modern technological era we live in. It’s exciting to think that people will do some great good with the information that Facebook and Google are collecting.
