about

If you want to find something on the World Wide Web, you 'Google' it. With its 1 million servers located around the world, the company handles over a billion search requests daily. But when the Internet first came online, people struggled to organize a seemingly infinite amount of information. Enter two computer science graduate students from Stanford, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and the $229 billion behemoth we now know as Google was born.For the first time, the most thought-provoking, revealing, and inspiring quotes from Google's founders have been compiled into a single book.The Google Boys: Sergey Brin and Larry Page In Their Own Words is a comprehensive guidebook to the inner workings of Google's founders. Hundreds of their best quotes, comprising thoughts on business, management, entrepreneurship, technology, innovation, and life lessons, provide an intimate and direct look into the minds of these modern business icons.They are now highly respected, established figures in the tech industry, but Page and Brin, unlike industry icons like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, have spent as little time as possible in front of the media. As a result, when Larry Page and Sergey Brin give time to speak, people listen. Carefully. If you want to find something on the World Wide Web, you 'Google' it.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for previous titles in Agate B2'sIn Their Own Words Series:It's the same treatment given such luminaries as Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln and Christopher Hitchens and offers Jobs's views on life, death, technology and design, among other topics." -Timothy R. Smith,The Washington Post"[It's] like eating salted peanuts: Once you start reading, it's hard to stop." -Anne Fisher,CNN Money"A 160-page collection of quotes from the most iconic product pitchman since P.T. Barnum." -Ben Popper,The New York Observer BetaBeat blog"A much better Jobs product is coming soon. It'll entertain you for hours, and no - it is not a Jobs-branded iPad or anything similarly high-tech. It is, friends, an old-fashioned book!" -Hillary Reinsberg,Mogulite"Inspirational reading pleasure." -Courtney Boyd Myers,The Next Web"The kind of book that you read, think about, and then pass on to a friend or colleague... I learned a lot about Jobs' thinking process." -Allen Stern,CenterNetworks"A short work to be dipped into for nuggets of business (or law firm) wisdom... " -Michael Roach,Law Technology News "
