I recently read the book Google It, by Anna Crowley Redding. Its theme is that success does not come from being normal or being rich, but from trying things noone has ever tried, and still have the determination to continue when others mock you. For instance, the booked discussed google’s nature as a untraditional company, meaning it does not follow normative “rules”. Google was also founded under interesting condition: It was a university project. Larry and Sergey stole computers to create Google’s server due to their small amounts of money.
I would recommend the book as it is a amazingly told story about Google and changing the world. It includes much information about the people involved with Google’s creation and also provided extremely entertaining side notes of anything from Google’s new inventions to tips on swearing in Klingon.
