Where does Google earn billions of dollar in revenue from? How does it give us search results? Why is the company most admirable place to work in the world?
The story of world’s fastest growing internet company will answer all these questions and more along with some breath-taking innovations and fascinating events that took place during the growth phase of the global search giant.
The book is like a diary of Google Inc from its official existence in 1998 to 2005 when it was still in its infancy. At that time also Google, a product of two brilliant, confident and courageous minds of Stanford was already turning into a ruthless competition for a company like Microsoft with it’s constant innovations and unique and fun loving work culture.
But what actually turned a smart yet free search engine into a moneymaking machine for its founders and shareholders is the real ingredient of this book. Every technical aspect from working of Google’s search engine, its advertisement algorithms, invention of some of the most widely used services of google like, Gmail is explained in a highly simple and digestible manner.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Google story and would recommend it to all. It is fascinating, easy to understand and gives us a glimpse into the workings of Google world which we all have become an inseparable part of.
