How Google Works is an entertaining, page-turning primer containing lessons that Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg have learned while helping grow Google from a young start-up to a global icon. Using anecdotes from Google's corporate history, How Google Works covers everything that managers need to know to be successful in the digital age:
Schmidt and Rosenberg explain how technology — the internet, mobile and cloud computing — has shifted the balance of power from companies to consumers. The companies that will thrive in this ever-changing landscape will be the ones that create superior products and attract a new breed of employees whom the authors dub 'smart creatives'.
Interesting book about Google from some of the extreme insiders.
With that said, doesn't say anything that haven't been said by other authors (which they acknowledge in the book as well) and in more depth.
If you're curious about Google/Alphabet, you can read it, but there is no great insights in. Decently, if somewhat boringly written.
