    1. The Google Story was a fascinating peek into the biggest brand and arguably the most successful technology company of all times. I remember some 8 years ago, when the book had come out everybody I met had read it already and were raving about it. I think the marketing term is reverse-bandwagon effect, I put off reading it then for the very same reason.Writing about an organization while it is in existence is indeed tough - especially if it is written by a news reporter. The chapters are essays o [...]


    2. Google. Прорыв в духе времени стоит прочитать хотя бы потому, что ее продукты используются ежедневно и повсеместно. Но,как говорится:Давайте без фанатизма!!! . Эта книга далеко не венец литературного слога, да и перевод (мягко говоря, не идеален). Первая часть книги (и самая интер [...]


    3. أسعد الله أوقاتكم جميعا قد تستغرب العنوان عزيزي القارئ لكني أحببت أن نتشارك المعرفة في موضوع تقني يهم جميع مستخدميها لأن هذا الوقت هو وقت المعلومة الأسرع كتاب قصة جوجل يحكي قصة أغرب الشركات وأكثرها إثارة للجدل في وول-ستريت , عندما تبدأ بقراءة قصة المؤسسين سيرجي برين -ذو ال [...]


    4. This is a remarkable story put together by someone who apparently had limited access to the mysterious labyrinths of Google. The book’s jacket clearly tells us that the book was not created, authorised or endorsed by Google, Inc. The narrative is starry-eyed and rarely reflects on the downside of Google’s journey. No doubt, the founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin fully deserve many of the kudos that came their way. Still, I came away with a feeling that the story could have been more balance [...]


    5. New found love and admiration for this organisation, without which the world seems essentially unimaginable today. This book is a comprehensive and lucid account of how the Google guys (Brin and Page) computer science PhD students at Stanford, thought of an idea and with their sheer resolve and cunningness built upon it and offered a revolutionary product in the world of internet that has made human life easy and simple in ways it would've been difficult to imagine otherwise.Fostering a culture [...]


    6. Could I be more in love with this company!!!!Last year one of our instructors showed us a short documentary about Google workplace. I remember the first thing popped into my mind was like; Man, they've got to be kidding!! .I mean the wacky environment and behaviors; you might find someone's walking in his pajama. Another one is doing his laundry!! And a third is getting a massage, while the fourth is playing with her puppy!! Oh, and let me add this a BARBERSHOP in your office, and of course the [...]


    7. I really liked this book and perhaps more so I loved the Google story. Are the Google guys really the goodies? I'm not sure but I need to believe that one can be financially successful without having to sell your soul or move away from your true goals and that is what I got most from this book. Guys wanting to create the best, not veering from the path despite the pressures. Not even wondering how it is going to make a dime. Simply focused on getting it right. The Google story puts any other ide [...]


    8. The book chronicles the journey of Google from its early days in the garage of a Paolo Alto residence, to mid 2005, roughly a year after Google went public. It is extensive in scope and covers everything from the idea search using 'pagerank', which led Google's founding, the early struggles of Larry and Sergey to get capital and their subsequent effort to make Google profitable, to their other products like Gmail and AdSense, their IPO and Google's future plans. One of the recurring themes in th [...]

    10. Something of a not-particularly-well-written puff piece for Google, back from the days when people still believed they could solve All Of The Problems by hurling themselves headlong at the altar of Technology. (And it's weird these tech wizards do their worship at the Burning Man Festival.)The weakness of Google is they have all the bits in one box, and can pull out nearly any one in a split second, but can't assemble them into anything except a gargantuan company, with its own tacky, life consu [...]


    11. The Google Story is a business case study, a lesson for all managers. It is a book that ought to be required reading in Management Classes everywhere. This is the story of an organisation’s growth from start-up status to world leadership. It is the story that tells the virtues of sticking to basic business principles and fundamentals, almost to the exclusion of all else. It is a story of how you can still have values, and yet do good business. And it is also the story of how, in crunch times, [...]


    12. SO much google propoganda. Also loved it. Also profiled so many bros and just casually mentioned the many successes of Marissa Mayer? Boo.


    13. Interesting background on the company, but still seems to paint them as the good guys in all cases. I hope it's true, they have changed the world and have the potential to make even bigger changes.


    14. صدمت في بداية قراءتي للكتاب من معرفة أصول مؤسسا جوجل اليهودية ، و انتماؤهم لـ"إسرائيل" ، خاصة أن الفصل الأول كان يقدمهما من خلال محاضرة أعطوها في جامعة هناك يحثون الطلاب على الإنتاج كما فعلوا . مشاعر متضاربة ، بين الدعوات المنتشرة بكثافة عن "مقاطعة" المنتجات اليهودية ، و بين ف [...]

    16. Google dalam waktu 6 tahun memang telah menggegerkan dunia. Para saingannya dibuat kalang kabut, bahkan Bill Gates bos Microsoft termasuk yang ketar-ketir menghadapi Google. Saat buku The Google Story karya David A. Vise diterbitkan ditahun 2005, Google bahkan masih terus menikmati kejayaanya. Saat inipun Google masih terus melakukan inovasi-inovasi untuk memantapkan kerajaannya di dunia internet. Google Labs sebagai wadah untuk mencoba produk-produk baru yang terus bertambah jumlahnya. Andapun [...]


    17. What I thought about this book was that this book, The Google Story, has got to be one of the best books I ever read for a while. Every single part of the book was very interesting to read about and I learned a lot more about Google and the history about it. On , there was a lot of positive feedback and comments from many other people that have read this book. People on said that it was an excellent book in explaining the more in depth history of Google and its formation. I completely agree wit [...]


    18. I have a big interest in marketing and business, and I found this book to be a very well structured and interesing narrative of how one company came up with something new and better and brought their business vision to fruition. Especially fascinating were the details of how the leadership roles were split amongst the creators and the CEO they hired, and how they compare with some of the traditional modes of leadership in Silicon Valley business ventures. Their work culture philosophy is also in [...]


    19. Gooooogle как много в этом звуке для сердца IT-шника слилось! Вот я наконец-то и добрался до истории легендарной компании, оказавшей столь значительное влияние на развитие IT индустрии. Было очень любопытно взглянуть с чего начинался путь этого многомиллиардного колосса, поближ [...]


    20. I read The Google Story a couple of years ago. It is meant to be the history of the Google Inc. but it looked more of a detective story as the whole book is very interesting with unbelievable incidents. The way Sergey Brin and Larry Page got together, the way they dropped out of Stanford University, their constant experimentations, expanding, meeting venture capitalists, investments pouring in and hiring a CEO are equally interesting incidents in Google’s way to success. It is amazing to read [...]


    21. This is a very exciting book that talks about two young entrepreneurs whom have built a giant internet empire. It covers the early stages of how they met each other, how the search engine idea originated, how they gathered the funds necessary to start the company and the story goes onI liked the style of the author bringing the pieces together. The only drawback from my point of view is that this book stops at year 2006 and as we all know Google is a very large and growing business entity where [...]


    22. Не смотря на то что книга написана в духе "хвалебной оды", авторы книги в лёгкой форме предоставили историю создания компании Google и её основателей, описали их проблемы и успехи, указали различия между другими компаниями, конкурентные преимущества, нетрадиционный подход к в [...]


    23. This is a very intriguing and interesting story of how two young guys changed the world through their search engine called Google. The story is very inspiring and motivating as I wonder what God can do through two young guys growing up in 2014 that can literally change the world through the power of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the Word of God.


    24. maybe it's the annoying guy reading the audiobook, or the gushing, insipid praise lavished through the prism of hindsight on the google founders, but this book takes an interesting story and makes it unbearable. hopefully brin and paige will write their own biographies when they are good and ready, cause no one should bother with this.


    25. كتاب رائع يشرح كل التفاصيل التي مرت بها قوقلاستغربت من قمة الذكاء التي يتميز بها مؤسسان قوقل حقيقه انهم مدرسة وتجربة قوقل من اعظم التجارب التجارية في هذا القرن بالنسبة لي طبعا ً انا قرأة النسخه العربية من الكتاب


    26. This book was incredibly bland. The author omitted or glossed over any negatives in the first two-thirds of the book, so when the legal issues are discussed towards the end they seem to come from nowhere. This should have been an easy read but it just didn't grab my attention at all.


    27. Loved the book!! As a reader, non-nonsense fast paced style. As a google lover, seems like I have seen it through. :)


    28. good insight into the development of google. All these google books need updating now after significant changes in recent months/years.
