Both Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg came to Google as seasoned Silicon Valley business executives, but over the course of a decade they came to see the wisdom in Coach John Wooden's observation that 'it's what you learn after you know it all that counts'. As they helped grow Google from a young start-up to a global icon, they relearned everything they knew about management. How Google Works is the sum of those experiences distilled into a fun, easy-to-read primer on corporate culture, strategy, talent, decision-making, communication, innovation, and dealing with disruption. The authors explain how the confluence of three seismic changes -- the internet, mobile, and cloud computing -- has shifted the balance of power from companies to consumers. The companies that will thrive in this ever-changing landscape will be the ones that create superior products and attract a new breed of multifaceted employees whom the authors dub 'smart creatives.' The management maxims ('Consensus requires dissension,' 'Exile knaves but fight for divas,' 'Think 10X, not 10%') are illustrated with previously unreported anecdotes from Google's corporate history.

Need to track female family members secretly? Google has the answer! Need to track political dissidents, pro-democracy activists, victims for forced human organ harvesting? Google has the answer! Need to track pro-human rights advocates for imprisonment and torture? Google has the answer.

A very silly and of course outdated book --- today Google/youtube leads the way in the Wall Street--directed communist takeover of America!
The article below, detailing the firing of a Google executuve as he was pro---human rights and Google is ANTI--HUMAN RIGHTS, is most telling.

[DISCLAIMER: Medium is itself pro--CCP and has kicked out or deplatformed (it is a social media site) a number of anti-communist bloggers.]
In reading Fei Fei Li, a Google AI scientist and active Chicom-agent in-place, like Jia Wang and Cyrus Janssen in Canada, Gary Locke and and Ted Lieu on the West Coast, Mitch McConnell in congress, etc., Adm. William Owens and other former high-ranking officers now CCP lobbyists, it is easy to understand the overarching strategy of this hardcore commie corporation and why the USA has quickly devolved into what it is today! Sadly, the fellow and former Google manager in the Medium article became a politician in the Party of Mao, formerly called the democratic party!

Tech guru, Rob Braxman, did a recent video on how the US government, PuppetMedia and corporate entities are tracking "extremists" (free speech advocates, pro-democracy advocates, etc.) through Google's Jigsaw operation working with the UK---based Moonshot entity.

How Google Works sheds light on company values, strategy and management style through the lenses of former CEO Eric Schmidt and current advisor to Google CEO Jonathan Rosenberg. Insightful, entertaining and filled with practical tools for work/creative success in any industry. A highlight for me was the emphasis on growth mindset/ lifelong learning attitude that is foundational in Google company culture (and is screened for during interviews). Also value of constant innovation, asking hard questions and imagining into the future to anticipate customer needs. Loads of examples of how creatives at Google are encouraged to take on projects that are purposeful, to take risks and embrace the new and different. Loved it!

This was a great opportunity to see how Google really works. At first I was somewhat anti-google, but after reading this, they totally earned their status because of their hard work and business model. I learned so much about the culture (for example, half of their work force are engineers), and they offer some great career advice such as invest in yourself, specialize in something, etc. I would recommend this book because it's a quick and witty read, with good stories, and I would especially recommend this to someone who is applying to Google. I appreciate how there is also a balance of stories and research/facts. It was really interesting!
