Thanks for the book recommendation, Tedster. My copy came a few days ago and I'm about half way through. There is lots of Google info in this book and its really filling in a lot of details for me about the personalities at Google and the business decisions the company has made.
If I have one complaint, I'd like to hear a lot more about the technical details that get glossed over in the book. But then, I'm a techie. As it is the, the reading is fascinating even if a little light on the meat.
I was surprised to no end when I read the three pages about Jon Kleinberg and his ideas that were similar to Google's initial implementation. He was my favorite college professor. I had no idea that he had such close Google connections.
