How Google Works was written by two long time Google employee, Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg, about what they learn in their past experience with Google.
In this book, they talked about their relationship with the founders, their management peers, and their smart creatives (regular employees).
This book does not talk about “How Google Works” in technical area, but it give many example to explain How Google operate to make it works. The story behind Google leaving China is fascinating. The authors were not afraid to admit the mistakes they made, but rather embracing them. There are couple points that I like in the books.
1. Use data to make decision or to backup your claim.
2. We live in the Internet century.
3. Hire employees who like to learn.
This is a management books. I like it how it explains all the technical terms in footnotes. If you are not in the computer industry, you will not be lost reading this book.
I recommend this book to those who are entering into management or seeking ideas to improve their company or team.
