After one of the most successful IPOs in history, Google set forth on a bold new strategy for its future, a vision so large and controversial that the company has worked very hard to keep it under wraps. The business world has been desperate to learn what Google is up to, because they know that Google is the arbiter of the future of the web.

Now, with unprecedented access to Google's top management, Randy Stross reveals for the first time the audacious scope of Google's new plan, including such potentially disruptive initiatives as free downloadable software, which could put providers like Microsoft out of business, and GoogleEarth and GoogleMaps satellite technology, which is rapidly mapping the entire surface of the Earth in high-powered detail. Stross explores the profound implications not only for the business world but for our culture at large. Download and start listening now!

    " Planet Google is very accessible but also informative for anyone who is interested in the history of Google as a company. Reading this, I was reminded of how incredibly quickly our online (and offline) world has changed. "

    " This taught me that I shouldn't read books about the internet anymore because they're all obsolete. Anyone who has successfully avoided a computer for the past decade and wants to catch up with the world should read this book. Topics not covered: Twitter, Buzz, and anything after mid-2008. "

    " Very interesting, especially if you work in IT. You will not only learn some fascinating facts about Google, but also about creativity, engineers and MBAs, and some of the relationships of other companies to Google. "
