I’m Feeling Lucky…

It’s entertaining, insightful and educational all while moving you through the timeline of Google’s success in the early years. What I like about this book that differs from others I’ve read is that it is a more personal account of those days and those early successes.

People who loved the movie The Social Network will love this book. It has that peeping-Tom feel to it into Google’s success window while giving you some accounts of people and progress on a personal level.

For those of us more geeky or techie the book does have nuggets of insight that are useful and worthwhile as well as very interesting. Like, Google engineers would often complete things only to 80% and had a great reason for doing things that way. Or perhaps you’d be interested to know that the original name of Google was Back Rub? Glad they changed the name!

I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the history of successful business or wants an insider’s look through the window of Google.
