Collection of brief factoids on Google and the corporation's founders and chief executive officer. While the book contains a lot of interesting and useful information, its thematic organization limits its value. On the other hand, the thematic organization makes the factoids more accessible.

A light, entertaining and occasionally informative book.
Review by Hpfan28
I usually don't read a lot of nonfiction book, but when I found one about Google I just had to pick it up. I sure was not disappointed either! The author formats the book just right so that you are not thrown some much information at one time that your mind gets fuzzy. For a long time I have been interested in Google and with this book, I was able to learn how they got started and how the company grew as a whole. Lowe put all the information in simple terms that really helped to understand the more technical aspects of the information.As the book shows Google is ever-growing and expanding and I look to forward to seeing where it goes from here. Overall the book was organized in small chunks and easy to understand. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to find out more about Google and its founders, and how the company came to be today.
