Both of Google’s founders were Montessori kids. That goes a long way towards explaining why they do things the way they do. I never really understood what happened with Google and China. This book devotes ample time to Google’s mistakes in China. This book did not quell my concerns regarding Google and privacy though. They aren’t trying to be evil, they just can’t understand why anybody would mind Google scanning and indexing your email, just to serve up better, more targeted ads.
Growing up in the 50s is not that much different than what I experienced growing up in the 70s. Because of that, this book resonated quite well with me, and I disturbed those around me multiple times by laughing out loud as I read. Highly recommended for anybody from the Boomer or Gen X generations.
