Book Review: How Google Works

How Google WorksHow Google Works by Eric Schmidt

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

They do have some very different views in this book. I would not want to work in the crowded, overworked environment they describe, but I do like the idea of smaller meetings that only include people that are key to the meeting and basing decisions on data whenever possible. The LAX test was a good one, never hire anyone you would not want to get stuck with at the airport. ☺ I like the idea of ship and iterate, create the product ship it out, find the defects, improve and ship again. But I see this may not work for most companies that are not the in the software or web business. You can’t create a manufactured good using this method.

There are lots of great ideas in this book, it is worth the read to find them all.
