After not being able to find anything that looked vaguely interesting, I picked up a copy of ‘The Google Story’ by David Vise and Mark Malseed. It is a fast pace read and is interesting to think what you were doing as the company evovled and when exactly you started using it for search.
I can’t really using anything else – I was very late to get onto the world wide web, even though I was using some kind of text version when I was at university.
People love to bag Google for whatever reason, but they have paid me several thousands of dollars of the past year or so, so I cannot really complain.
Even though most people would be familiar with their story, it still makes an interesting read and it is definitely required reading for any webmaster.
