By Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg
Google Executive Chairman and ex-CEO Eric Schmidt and former SVP of
Products Jonathan Rosenberg came to Google over a decade ago as proven
technology executives. At the time, the company was already well-known
for doing things differently, reflecting the visionary--and frequently
contrarian--principles of founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. If Eric
and Jonathan were going to succeed, they realized they would have to
relearn everything they thought they knew about management and business.
Today, Google is a global icon that regularly pushes the
boundaries of innovation in a variety of fields. HOW GOOGLE WORKS is an
entertaining, page-turning primer containing lessons that Eric and
Jonathan learned as they helped build the company. The authors explain
how technology has shifted the balance of power from companies to
consumers, and that the only way to succeed in this ever-changing
landscape is to create superior products and attract a new breed of
multifaceted employees whom Eric and Jonathan dub "smart creatives."
Covering topics including corporate culture, strategy, talent,
decision-making, communication, innovation, and dealing with disruption,
the authors illustrate management maxims ("Consensus requires
dissension," "Exile knaves but fight for divas," "Think 10X, not 10%")
with numerous insider anecdotes from Google's history, many of which are
shared here for the first time.In an era when everything is
speeding up, the best way for businesses to succeed is to attract
smart-creative people and give them an environment where they can thrive
at scale. HOW GOOGLE WORKS explains how to do just that.

What happens when ordinary people are taught a system to make extraordinary money?
Dennis made a fortune on Wall Street by investing according to a few
simple rules. Convinced that great trading was a skill that could be
taught to anyone, he made a bet with his partner and ran a classified ad
in the Wall Street Journal looking for novices to train. His
recruits, later known as the Turtles, had anything but traditional Wall
Street backgrounds; they included a professional blackjack player, a
pianist, and a fantasy game designer. By the time the experiment ended,
Dennis had made a hundred million dollars from his Turtles and created
one killer Wall Street legend.
