With a new afterword from the author, What Would Google Do? is the business book that every leader or potential leader in every industry must read.

From the Back Cover:

In a book that’s one part prophecy, one part thought experiment, one part manifesto, and one part survival manual, internet impresario and blogging pioneer Jeff Jarvis reverse-engineers Google, the fastest-growing company in history, to discover forty clear and straightforward rules to manage and live by. At the same time, he illuminates the new worldview of the internet generation: how it challenges and destroys—but also opens up—vast new opportunities. His findings are counterintuitive, imaginative, practical, and above all visionary, giving readers a glimpse of how everyone and everything—from corporations to governments, nations to individuals—must evolve in the Google era.

What Would Google Do? is an astonishing, mind-opening book that, in the end, is not about Google. It’s about you.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. What s the question every business should be asking itself? According to Jeff Jarvis, it s What Would Google Do? If you re not thinking or acting like Google - the fastest-growing company in the history of the world - then you re not going to survive, let alone prosper, in the Internet age. To demonstrate how to emulate Google, Jarvis lays out his laws of what he calls the new Google century, including such insights as: Think Distributed, Become a Platform, Join the Post-Scarcity, Open-Source, Gift Economy, The Middleman Has Died, Your Worst Customers Are Your Best Friends and Your Best Customers Are Your Partners, Do What You Do Best and Link to the Rest, Get Out of the Way, and Make Mistakes Well and More. Jarvis applies these principles not just to emerging technologies and the Internet, but to other industries - telecommunications, airlines, television, government, healthcare, education, journalism, and yes, book publishing - showing ultimately what the world would look like if Google ran it. The result is an astonishing, mind-opening book that will change the way readers ask questions and solve problems. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780061709692
