Book Summary of I'm Feeling Lucky: Falling On My Feet in Silicon Valley

When Douglas Edwards was interviewed for a marketing job at Google in 1999, by a young man bouncing on a large ball while dressed in roller hockey gear, he suspected he might be working somewhere unconventional. He had no idea. He didn't know he was about to have his work/life balance knocked on its inner ear. He didn't know that data was next to divinity. He didn't know how many Internet executives could squeeze into a hot tub, or how it felt to 'earn' more in one day than he had in thirty years.

This is the story of how he found out. In I'm Feeling Lucky Doug, Employee Number 59, takes us inside the hyper-energized world of the Googleplex for the closest look you can get without an ID card, showing what it's like to survive the g-forces of a corporate ascent without precedent, as Google exploded from obscurity to dictionary definition in five short years.

If you were entranced watching the stratospheric rise of Google from fringe search engine to one of the largest economies on Earth, you'll enjoy many happy hours immersed in the pages of I'm Feeling Lucky: The Confessions of Google Employee Number 59. If you appreciate Google's dogged insistence...

Note: Review copy provided via Netgalley.I am going to assume that a few of the things I will mention in my review have been fixed. However, given the expedited publishing schedule (one of the downsides of epublishing, I suppose), I kind of doubt it.First off, I'm going to fix the subtitle. "I'm...

Herve December 12, 2012 review from Goodreads

I thought this might be just another book about Google. It is not. The lessons are amazing. And here are examples. A first illustration comes from a conversation between Douglas and Larry Page: â??I realize that more often than not youâ??ve been right about things. I feel like Iâ??m learning a lot and...

Russell October 04, 2012 review from Goodreads

This appears to be the most authentic, or perhaps the only, insider account of the creation and rise of Google. That alone makes it worth reading. The author write well enough, but much of the content is only of interest to engineers, financial analysts, or journalists whose jobs are directly or...

Ken August 27, 2012 review from Goodreads

My daughter started using Google before I did. I was using Yahoo to search the internet. I asked her what it was she liked about Google. She showed it to me and said she liked the simplicity and the speed. Google Employee Number 59 was Douglas Edwards. In this book, I learn that he wasn't the typ...
