User Review  - John Mensing - Goodreads

Not content to pen another puff piece on Larry Page, Steven Levy attempts a hagiography of all the players in _In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works and Shapes our Lives_. It might be helpful to ... Read full review

In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, And Shapes Our Lives Finally a non-children's book! Unfortunately the people this book focuses on still have the maturity level of children. In the Plex starts ... Read full review

User Review  - Christine Kirchberger - Goodreads

If you are really interested in Google, it is probably worth reading. If you are, as me, more interested in the background of search engines, it is not quite what you expect. I love Levy's other books, & they are excellent as audiobooks. Read full review

Review: In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives

User Review  - Duncan - Goodreads

Best part is first half of the book that describes the early days of Google and how it's culture developed. Second half gets boring (too much stuff I already know, not enough insider's info). Read full review

User Review  - Elena - Goodreads

Fascinating, the stories of the development of different features are interesting, but it's a bit overloaded on details and also a bit too worshipful. A lot to slog through. Read full review

User Review  - Marcelo Galdieri - Goodreads

Maybe it's my aversion to business books, or my Apple fandom, but I couldn't get past the first third of the book. I truly tried since it came recommended by a good friend, but at the end, life is too short and there's too many good things waiting to be read. Read full review

User Review  - Nathan Beers - Goodreads

Lots of inside baseball... includes long drawn out lists of who Google hired and what their resumes were. Maybe it got better further in, but I just couldn't wade through it. Read full review

Review: In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives

User Review  - Alistair - Goodreads

Completely boring "official" account of Google's history. Puts a positive spin on every decision ever made by the Schmidt/Page/Brin trio. Sheds very little new light on anything, especially from a ... Read full review
