A book about Google by employee number 26,119 could be mildly interesting, but one by employee number 59 promises to be downright enthralling, especially if that employee happens to have been a major player during that legendary company's dizzying formative growth. As Google's director of consumer marketing and brand management, Douglas Edwards had full access to the fledgling corporation's prime movers, giving Feeling Lucky an insider's feel that is missing from many accounts of the behemoth. The book conveys the sense of excitement in those early days ("early" meaning 1999 to 2005), but it doesn't spare critiques of the occasional overconfidence of Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. A spirit-lifting takeoff for every aspiring entrepreneur or avid business reader.
