More Description

"An exciting story that] shines light on the inner workings of the fledgling Google and on the personalities of its founders."--"The Daily Beast"
In its infancy, Google embraced extremes--endless days fueled by unlimited free food, nonstop data-based debates, and blood-letting hockey games. The company's fresh-from-grad-school leaders sought more than old notions of success; they wanted to make all the information in the world available to everyone--instantly. Google, like the Big Bang, was a singularity--an explosive release of raw intelligence and unequaled creative energy--and while others have described what Google accomplished, no one has explained how it felt to be a part of it. Until now.
As employee number 59, Douglas Edwards was a key part of Google's earliest days. Experience the unnerving mix of camaraderie and competition as Larry Page and Sergey Brin create a famously nonhierarchical structure, fight against conventional wisdom, and race to implement myriad new features while coolly burying broken ideas. "I'm Feeling Lucky "captures the self-created culture of the world's most transformative corporation and offers unique access to the emotions experienced by those who virtually overnight built one of the world's best-known brands.
"Edwards does an excellent job of telling his story with a fun, outsider-insider voice. The writing is sharp."--"Boston Globe"
"An affectionate, compulsively readable recounting of the early years of Google."--"Publishers Weekly"
