Google Guys; The (Paperback) Price: Rs.281

An account of the founders of the internet giant Google, this book in an insightful read about the history and progress of the company, the awe-inspiring backbone of the company, the exceptional world of the internet, and the immense opportunities it has in store.

Summary Of The Book

While the Google search engine seems to be the all-knowing, brainy entity at the present time, there are two brains behind Google as well, i.e, its founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. This book is a pure non-fiction account that focuses on not merely the story of the internet giant Google. Instead, it talks about the two genius minds that came together to create the phenomena that Google is today. 

The Google Guys: Inside The Brilliant Minds Of Google Founders Larry page And Sergey Brin Reprint Edition is replete with anecdotes that provide a clear picture of how Page and Brin are as individuals and how they complement each other in their approach towards work and life in general. The author has done a wonderful job at defining the characteristics of Page and Brin. While Page takes care of strategising and is practical in his approach, Brin is the primary technologist who follows an idealistic approach.

The book also explores Eric Schmidt, an extremely tranquil character, who joined Google in the March of 2001 and became the company’s CEO five months later. Schmidt’s opinion about Page and Brin, their farsightedness, sheer genius, incredible synchrony and single-mindedness, serves as an interesting and credible source of information about the founders.

This fantastic narrative has been sourced from interviews with those who have worked in Google and with the founders, the top-level executives and the founders themselves. The book delves into controversies surrounding the company and clears many misconceptions too.

The Google Guys: Inside the Brilliant Minds of Google Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin Reprint Edition is a must read for all the fans of Google, young entrepreneurs seeking inspiration, those who have unanswered questions about the company, and those who are simply in awe of the founders and their brainchild.

More like a paid article in a local newspaper

Just like the title above suggests, this book is hardly anything more than an article someone got published in a local newspaper after paying up the scribe who had no money and no ethics.

I am no expert book critic but have read my own share and this was a crass and blatant example of making God's out of guys,although, believe me, I am a big follower of the google founders, just that this book wasn't their wisest decision if they ever agreed to let it get to print.

If you really want to understand something about google, I would suggest reading The google story. It is way more informative...

A Good Read

It may not give you new information about Google or its founders, which is not yet written about or published in youtube google documentary videos. But the author has shown Google from the founder's perspective. After reading this book, you will be able to appreciate Larry and Sergey's approach to finding solutions.

Now I feel like I know them personally.

AmazinG Book

I shows how Google got it's success , but has presented it vaguely hence the readers should read the book cautiously in order to get the founders "essence". The book has been well written .
