New Releases. Free delivery worldwide. Description "An exciting story [that] shines light on the inner workings of the fledgling Google and on the personalities of its founders. The company's fresh-from-grad-school leaders sought more than old notions of success; they wanted to make all the information in the world available to everyone--instantly. Google, like the Big Bang, was a singularity--an explosive release of raw intelligence and unequaled creative energy--and while others have described what Google accomplished, no one has explained how it felt to be a part of it.
Until now. As employee number 59, Douglas Edwards was a key part of Google's earliest days. Experience the unnerving mix of camaraderie and competition as Larry Page and Sergey Brin create a famously nonhierarchical structure, fight against conventional wisdom, and race to implement myriad new features while coolly burying broken ideas.
I'm Feeling Lucky captures the self-created culture of the world's most transformative corporation and offers unique access to the emotions experienced by those who virtually overnight built one of the world's best-known brands. The writing is sharp. People who bought this also bought. In The Plex Steven Levy. Add to basket. The Search John Battelle. Work Rules! VC Tom Nicholas. Coders Clive Thompson.

Prior to joining Google, Edwards was the online brand group manager for the San Jose Mercury News, where he conceived and led development of the technology news site siliconvalley.
This is a rare look at what happened inside the building of the most important company of our time. The teller is an ex-employee who joined Google early and who treats readers to vivid inside stories of what life was like before Google became a verb. Douglas Edwards recounts Google's stumble and rise with verve and humor and a generosity of spirit.
He kept me turning the pages of this engrossing tale. Want the latest Email Address. The new chef served great lobster, but Edwards often had to eat it at his desk. He worked 16 hours a day and was on call for the other eight. He couldn't discover the corporate strategy he was supposed to be implementing because it existed only inside the founders' heads, and they declined to divulge it. They wouldn't tell him which decisions needed their approval and reversed policy in his own field behind his back.

By this account, early-years Google was more of a harsh and chaotic dictatorship than a benevolent fraternity. Still, everyone was focused on the same goal and sought only to get things done. Edwards liked his work, he liked the challenges and he liked his driven colleagues, though personal hygiene became an issue in such a frenzied environment. When the firm went public he was reorganised out of a job, but that was OK, too. Though his kids now barely recognised him, he had helped "advance the human condition".
With stock options thrown in. This tale may well hold a moral for the world's woebegone workers, but sadly not the one they might have liked.source
