The account of the Google story, its transformation and struggle to keep balance in philosophy, busineas practice and culture.

Insight on the mechanics of management in this new kind of business and the paradoxes it generates, abundance and scarcity from distuption.

I didn't like all of the essays in this book (the one about the bad internet date was particularly ridiculous) but there was one essay (about the UrbanBaby message board revealing the desperation of motherhood) that really stuck with me.

The thing is, I thought the pieces in this book would be more tech-driven, but they were actually more about human relationships mediated by the internet.

Amazing read. Gives a good view into the search engineering mammoth. Success of Google is because of the audacious vision of Larry and Sergey, combined with their extreme discipline in execution. Interesting to see that they have a Googley approach in every single thing they do. A must read for anyone interested in Google's products and engineering.
