Books about Google

On my commute into the PubGears office today, I finished listening to I’m feeling lucky: The Confessions of Google employee 59 (via audible). I’ve also recently listened to The Search and In the Plex

All three of these books are fascinating in their own ways, but taken as a whole shine a really interesting light into the story behind Google, how it operates, and a little bit about how it really came to be the powerhouse that it is today.

If you’re into search, or just interested in the story behind a lot of the modern internet, I would highly recommend you read all three of these books (and fairly close together).
