The google story by David A.Vise(book review)

June 16, 2009 § 14 Comments

GOOGLE is an household name , at least something which everyone who has a “virtual” life knows .

Picture from here

And at some point or the other , we have all wondered about how on earth , rather how in the cyber space do they do it?  This book takes tells us how by the name of the google , they did it .

Some grey cells decided that the world of internet , one with a lot of potential wasn’t alright ( it was messy(with a Y) ,ore like row-naldo)  so they decided that it was time to just send the right signals -not just to the other parts of the body , but to the entire known universe – at least virtually if not literally 😉

Reading the book , got me really inspired (as in to believe in myself and in my head,heart etc etc) . And the guys behind it Sergey Brin and Larry Page , well just wish I get the chance to meet them one day and talk to them . And it is not just creating a search engine but the way the stood by their idea ( ya ya many rejected google when it was up for a million dollars { and I am damn happy that no one bought it!!! } ) and how today it rules the cyber space .

And of course the way it is written is fantastic ! It surely deserves three woots  😉 Just loved the flow and the way the author has managed to make it more  like a (as it says in the book cover) ” detective story” .

For those who want a peek into , one of the greatest inventions of our time , just run faster than a google search and get this book . And for those who are curious about what went into the making of your googling , well just run and get it .
