In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives by Steven Levy
Do you go to Data Driven Business Week or a conference of that ilk?
if yes, then read this book for historical entertainment, else waste time;
The history, and portraits of individuals that Levy paints are interesting. From a non-googler’s perspective, I enjoyed how Levy characterizes the decision making process. Of particular note are the YouTube, China, and IPO sections. It is quick read, and worth the time from a historical perspective.
