The Google Story

The Google Story

ISBN 055380457X

David Vise writes an interesting story about Google, the company that many living in my neighbourhood think is the internet. Vise takes readers inside the creation of a company whose operations in Ireland have brought millions of research dollars into the country, employing dozens of fresh-faced PhDs in the process. The Google Story explains more about how a populist media company, fueled by advanced technology, has revolutionalised information access. And for me, Google is suggesting a pathway of personal exploration that could add another 10 years to my lifespan.

I like this book--it's the first one I've bought with a 13-digit ISBN code. I like Google too because I can find most things without typing 13 words in its search bar.
