    "The rise of one of today's most influential tech companies becomes the focus of a non-fiction tale. However, by including the perspective of Google's founders, the book lacks the perspective of the giant's adversaries during their rise to fame. This is a good read but there are surely more angles to the story."

    "This is an exciting look at what Google was like at the beginning. To have a narrative by someone who actually worked at Google gives authenticity to the story and a fascinating behind the scenes look at a company that is a major industry in today's society. An easy read; a great read!"

    "The book is very specific and detailed about Adwords of Google. If you are interested and want to learn everything about Adwords this is the only and best book you can find in the market. But the book will not give you any other tools of Google or more main info about Google itself."

    "Okay, I barely managed to power through this book and all I can say is this was just awful, self-serving, lazy, and at best hilarious in hindsight. This book was written by someone that was clearly a massive Google fanboy because it's nothing but brushing off or ignoring serious issues with how Google handles peoples data. It would have been questionable when this book was written in 2009 and it's just gotten massively worse since then."

    "Working in HR I was really excited to read this book and see what other companies do during their job interviews. I don't use riddles and brain teasers in my interview process, but I still found this to be an interesting read and can totally see how tech companies would use these strategies. "
