really liked it

I rated this book higher than I maybe should mostly because of the impact it had on me, not because the writing was superb. Silly, maybe, but I finished the book and set about trying to be a bit more like Brin and Page.

I admired their mix of tenacity and talent. I also appreciated their ability to work as a team, and later to ask for help, hiring Eric Schmidt. Their willingness to think big, to keep their product simple, to insist that their staff set aside R&D time each week, to leverage their power and to protect individual privacy are all things that impacted me.
