Inside the Googleplex

Monday, April 11, 2011

Technology reporter Steven Levy discusses how Google has managed to become one of the most admired and successful companies in history and an indispensable part of our lives. He was granted unprecedented access to the company, and in In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives, he takes readers inside Google headquarters—the Googleplex—to show how Google works, the keys to its success, its missteps in China, and how new efforts in social networking have Google chasing a successful competitor for the first time.
