I didn't like all of the essays in this book (the one about the bad internet date was particularly ridiculous) but there was one essay (about the UrbanBaby message board revealing the desperation of motherhood) that really stuck with me.

The thing is, I thought the pieces in this book would be more tech-driven, but they were actually more about human relationships mediated by the internet.

Amazing read. Gives a good view into the search engineering mammoth. Success of Google is because of the audacious vision of Larry and Sergey, combined with their extreme discipline in execution. Interesting to see that they have a Googley approach in every single thing they do. A must read for anyone interested in Google's products and engineering.

Amazing, inspiring, informative. A mandatory read for anyone who loves what they do, even if not necessarily tech related.
