Updated with a new afterword, the inside story behind one of the most successful and admired technology companies of our time.

Granted unprecedented access, Steven Levy takes readers inside the Googleplex, the company’s headquarters, to show how Google works. The key to Google’s success in all its businesses, Levy reveals, is its engineering mindset and embrace of such Internet values as speed, openness, experimentation, and risk-taking. But these values have not saved Google from missteps and pitfalls as it, like other tech companies, grows exponentially and comes under increasing public scrutiny. Can Google continue to compete and not be evil?

“The most interesting book ever written about Google.” —The Washington Post
