      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    The Google Guys is an account of the founders of the internet giant Google. It is an insightful read about the history and the overwhelming growth of the company, the exceptional world of the internet, and the immense possibilities it has in store.

    Summary of the Book

    While the Google Search Engine is an omniscient entity at the present time, there are two geniuses behind Google - Larry Page and Sergey Brin. This book talks about the two Founders who created the phenomenon that Google is today. The Google Guys: Inside The Brilliant Minds of Google Founders Larry page And Sergey Brin is full of anecdotes that describe how Page and Brin are as individuals, and how they complement each other perfectly in their outlook on work and life in general. Richard L. Brandt defines the individualities of Page and Brin. While Page handles strategizing and is realistic in his approach, Brin is the main technologist who is idealistic in his approach. The book also talks about Eric Schmidt, an exceptionally composed man, who joined Google in 2001 and became the company’s CEO just after five months. Schmidt’s words on the Founders’ vision, genius, synchrony and focus, serves as a fascinating and reliable source of information about Page and Brin. This compelling narrative has also been complemented with interviews of those who have worked in Google and with its founders, the top-level executives, and the founders themselves. The book sheds light on the controversies surrounding Google and clears several misconceptions as well. It is a must read for all the ardent fans of Google, budding entrepreneurs, and those who wish to know more about 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 und...

    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.
