In The Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives [Book Review]
Well ladies and gents, the time has come for another book review of a fabulous tale of Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and the rest of the Google Team. Journalist Steven Levy takes us inside Google since its very beginning and describes some of the history of the mega company. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it. Peering into the most important company of our lives was educational and entertaining, to say the least.
The book details how each of Google's most important products were born including search, AdSense, Gmail, and Analytics. It also goes into some of the serious issues they encountered along the way like their expansion into China, their fight against Facebook, and Bing. Overall it was a good read and I would definitely recommend it to any avid Google user. Buy it here for your kindle, iDevice, or in plain old paper.
