Humans at the Top
I like this book because it humanizes the heroes of this drama without getting too deep in the drama. The books gives a lot of detail about how Larry and Sergey created their pet project and how it came to rule our lives, it doesn't gloss over complaints, but doesn't delve too deeply in the soap opera elements of unhappy former employees, etc.
This book talks a lot about the business strategy and the future of the Internet, search and the potential impact on our lives, noting that experts say search is less than 5% solved. It adds that the linked connection to create a better search engineer that Larry and Sergey designed wasn't unique and they would have created some kind of business regardless.
The book goes through a lot of they key players and key events not only in the lives of the Google twins, but also in the evolution of what is becoming a key element in the lives of most humans on the planet -- the evolving Internet.
I like the detail and next to What Would Google Do, this is my favorite Google book. Good stuff
