Sergey Brin e Larry Page sono i fondatori di Google, il motore di ricerca per Internet più famoso al mondo. I due cominciarono a lavorarci verso la metà degli anni Novanta. Al tempo i due studiavano presso la Stanford University, ed è proprio lì, a due passi dalla Silicon Valley, che hanno iniziato a cambiare la storia della tecnologia, della comunicazione e dell´uomo. Con questo ritratto conoscerai la loro storia personale, la loro amicizia e le tappe che li hanno portati a essere due degli uomini più importanti per il progresso dell´umanità. 1. Italian.

In many ways, Google is the prototype of a successful 21st-century company. It uses technology in new ways to make information universally accessible; promotes a corporate culture that encourages creativity among its employees; and takes its role as a corporate citizen very seriously, investing in green initiatives and developing the largest corporate foundation in the U.S. Following in the footsteps of her best-selling Warren Buffett Speaks - written in a conversational style that successfully captures the essence of these business leaders - Janet Lowe reveals the amazing story behind one of the most important new companies of our time by exploring the people and philosophies that have made Google a global phenomenon in less than 15 years. She offers an engaging look at how its founders transformed their vision of a better Internet search engine into a business colossus with about $16 billion in annual revenue. Lowe discusses the values that drive Brin and Page - both living fairly modest lives despite each having a net worth of over $15.9 billion - and details how they have created a culture that fosters fun, yet keeps Google at the forefront of technology through relentless R&D investments and imaginative partnerships with organizations such as NASA. Examining Google´s breakthrough business strategies, which transformed online advertising and changed the way we look at corporate responsibility and employee relations, we see why Google may be a harbinger of where corporate America is headed. Also addressed are controversies surrounding Google, such as copyright infringement, antitrust concerns, and personal privacy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Pratt.

The Google Guys:Inside the Brilliant Minds of Google Founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin Portfolio Richard L. Brandt
An in-depth look at the strategies of Google´s shockingly successful founders.You´ve used their products. You´ve heard about their skyrocketing wealth and ´´don´t be evil´´ business motto. But how much do you really know about Google´s founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin? Inside Larry and Sergey´s Brain skips past the general Google story and focuses on what really drives these men and where they will take Google in the future. Richard L. Brandt shows the company as the brainchild of two brilliant but individual men and looks at Google´s business decisions in light of its founders´ ambitions and beliefs.Larry is the main strategist, with business acumen and practical drive, while Sergey is the primary technologist and idealist, with brilliant ideas and strong moral positions. But they work closely together, almost like complementary halves of a single brain. Larry is more socially awkward and rarely volunteers to answer questions. Sergey is more poised but is also shy with outsiders.Through interviews with current and former employees, competitors, partners, and senior Google management, plus conversations with the founders themselves, Brandt demystifies the secret society that is Google, as well as clarifying a number of misconceptions. 1.
