This was a great opportunity to see how Google really works. At first I was somewhat anti-google, but after reading this, they totally earned their status because of their hard work and business model. I learned so much about the culture (for example, half of their work force are engineers), and they offer some great career advice such as invest in yourself, specialize in something, etc. I would recommend this book because it's a quick and witty read, with good stories, and I would especially recommend this to someone who is applying to Google. I appreciate how there is also a balance of stories and research/facts. It was really interesting!

How Google Works
Just the type of book I love; short, funny and informative.
From the double entendre title to the concluding chapter, the text is more than a little messianic regarding information technology and the Google business model.
Reading the lengthy acknowledgements, I came away impressed by the consultative process used to deliver this book. tfc
