    Data loving, diva accepting, knave hating smart creatives out to save the world and rescue us from the evil incumbents Ready to hear that again and again Good, because if there s one message the authors of How Google Works actually adhere to, it s that repetition doesn t spoil the prayer even when it does.For all the talk of pithy, to the point meetings, messages, and culture, this book sure is long A 3 year, 260 page effort that could and should have been condensed into a book half its size Cha [...]

    A decent book about Google from it s former CEO and head of product I am only giving it 3 stars because a lot of it was too vague to be useful or stuff I already knew However every 5 or 10 pages there was a nugget, or reminder of something I knew but that was good to think about Also good to see a lot of this all written down in one place So worthwhile overall, though it did take me a while to plow through Eric spent a lot of time talking about product excellence In todays crowded market, produc [...]

    There is enough here to keep management teams in all departments busy for a long time There is also a lot of flattering stories about how great Google is Get past that and there is a lot of gold.

    I enjoyed this book I think there are a lot of great takeaways from how Google runs their business Some of my favorites had to do with interviewing candidates The way they interview candidates stuck out to me because hiring the right people is absolutely key to having a successful business Don t settle for a B candidate when you should be striving for the A I also liked what they had to say about making decisions You don t get real buy in until all the choices have been discussed and to reach a [...]

    Overall disappointed with the book Here s a summary We re GoogleWe re awesome You are not worthy of us It seems the best lesson you can take with this is 1 Start a company with 2 brilliant co founders who get along well with others2 Be in a ridiculously growing industryThe book it reminded me most of was the fawning The McKinsey WayAnother thing that annoyed me was the use of the third person by the authors or ghost author There was no I us in the book, which is not what I expected since most of [...]

    This book was a very good read on management techniques used at Google I work at BloomReach, a technology company in Silicon Valley, and have seen many of the same practices work well here Our co founder and CTO came from Google, so it s not an accident that many of the practices are familiar to me Here are the key concepts I got out of the book Most of these are not exclusive to tech, but rather to any growing company To properly scale a company, you must be able to get rid of traditional hiera [...]

    Before reading the book, I have always been fascinated about the fact how google works and this book answers all Was astonished to hear the basic prototype and the working model of Google glass was done within 90 mins This shows how the smart creatives work And another important take away is Hippo s aren t always right, and as an employee you should be able to rise your voice on your suggestion And in Google Hippo s believe in the fact that their employees are right, so as we do here 20% time to [...]

    I ve been a pretty big fan of Eric Schmidt for a while and have watched a lot of his talks so in spite of this being familiar, this was still an excellent read.I particularly enjoyed learned from the parts where he talked about rating performance, organizing around goals and how those goals are data number based Probably the most concise explanation of 20% Time that I ve read or listened to even from previous talks he s given Even portions that contradicted my own biases home v office, work life [...]

    A must read book for everyone in an organisation and a great book for the HR bunch I started reading this book with no interest but now I am in awe cos the kind of culture that Google exhibits is wonderful.Hire the best people Give them extraordinary pay if they possess extraordinary talent Pay should not be based on experience but should be based on talent.Everyone should be involved in recruiting not just the HR Never put a B in yo hiring people and soon you will have only Bs Cs and Ds While m [...]

    An essential read for everyone who uses Google No really I think there s something quite special in a book where ex CEO of the company has written it In general, a big part of this book is an overlook to how Google did business and what kind of people and products did they have Still, there are many interesting little facts that I found appealing.

    I thought this book had some good points and tips in it, but I got lost in a lot of the business stories that I couldn t really connect with.

    It was a good and amusing read with some geeky humor interspersed along with raw wisdom.But like many other books mostly motivational and self help ones reader should beware of the survivorship bias This is how Google works, described as clearly and directly as possible, but this is not necessarily how Google turned into a billion dollar company Many other dead companies have had few or most of such traits but didn t succeed So, my advise apply with care

    This book is a must read for anybody who wants to better understand how to manage a business in the age of information or anybody who is just curious about the culture within Google that led them to become one of the most innovative companies of modern times It contains insight on how to hire the best and the brightest, described by those at Google as smart creatives , and how to build a culture under which those smart creatives are allowed to thrive You feel as if you re learning along with the [...]

    I have always been a fan of Google and its products Being able to see how the world best company works was extremely intersting and beneficial I thought it would only be about Google itself, but the book is practical and gives direct solutions The products stories they mentioned made the book inspiring and enjoyable I would rarely read books that none of my friends read and reviewed, but it was listed as one of 2014 best books If you are starting a company, this book should be the first in your [...]

    I always wondered how Google, growing so rapidly, could maintained its innovation and got some answers here It s about culture, and freedom, and hiring the right people, and morals, and listening, and making tough decisions Eye opening and inspiring.

    It has always been a mystery to me how Google makes money hand over fist This book provides insights from two of the senior executives who have had a seat at the table for than a decade.So, how does Google mint money The short answer is AdWords, Google s advertising platform The in depth answer is explained in chapters organized around the following core competencies that all organizations possess, but that Google seems to execute particularly well Culture, Strategy, Talent, Decisions, Communic [...]

    Just in case you think this book is all about geeky software jargon on how Google works, it s not The book by Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman, and Jonathan Rosenberg, the adviser to CEO Larry Page, is a gripping, well structured, description of the core principles that underline the work ethics of the company The authors were CEO and senior vice president during Google s formative years.Don t expect an objective assessment of Google as a company, because the authors are still employees The [...]

    Disclaimer 1 I dislike business books I only read them when I am forced to or when I receive them as gifts If you re a fan of business books, skip this review Disclaimer 2 I distrust Google as a company I think their corporate slogan of Don t be evil is disingenuous and that some of Google s actions go against their own mantra And I reject any notion I am a hypocrite because I use gmail and Chrome one can enjoy a product and not buy into the corporate kool aid This book is essentially part propa [...]

    I really enjoyed learning how the company of my dreams works internally It s truly a culture worth emulating, and after reading this book, I ve picked up a few tips and tricks that I can implement in my own team It s a fun read, although I listened to it on audiobook and probably skipped a few parts What I loved 1 Eric sharing his insights about fostering innovation and what makes a great team2 The idea about Google eventually being one upped by other companies and that s okay with them.3 Keepin [...]

    I felt that the name given to the book is a bit of a misnomer and as far as I m concerned, it should ve been What does it feel like to be a googler or What makes Google what it is While I was reading this book, coincidentally, many of my friends first question was Have they divulged the algorithm based on which their search engine works Surprisingly enough, this thought never occurred to me when i picked up the book first I was excited about the company as a whole as I would ve been for any othe [...]

    The inspiring story of how google work This book doesn t contain the code or algorithm or reveal how the technology things work but guide you throughout the company mechanism From hiring to firing, Google suggests that some conservative MBA ideas aren t good enough in this internet century However, this new management style may not applicable to some industries like assurances services which need professional schemes than innovative thinking.

    Great book Got learned many points about how employees and employers should be The best part I like in this is, in order to develop best products, our focus should be on technical insights of the products rather than profits If product has functionalities and user friendly, profits obviously follows it While I came across the part, CULTURE of the company, I thought of our culture, the answer was CULTURE OF LEARNING which lets people improve themselves in all possible ways.
