    How would Google run the world? How would everything look if every industry, every social activity was "googley"? Everything would be more open, collaborative and fun, that is how. The book might be masked as an exploration of a successful way of doing things, but in reality it a call for the open-source "gift" economy in which everyone participates to create great value. It makes sense too, for much of it. Apple posed some problems for the author though. Apparently non-open-source can also work [...]

    It may be unfair to give this book a rating since I couldn't finish it. For all I know, my complaints were resolved in the second half. So with that in mindIt was interesting to read this book soon after a reread ofClay Shirky'sHere Comes Everybody, as both are recent offerings by major publishers on our changing internet culture. However the strengths of Shirky's book and the faults in this one can be traced, I believe, to the two men's backgrounds. Shirky has been a professor at NYU for about [...]

    "Google is an avalanche and it has only just begun to tumble down the mountain."The world wide web is an amazing phenomena in the way that religion is a phenomena. You may love it, you may hate it or you may be somewhere inbetween. Regardless where you are in that spectrum it is here and like religion it is powerful so we might as well try to learn about it. At first I thought this book was going to be about as exciting as the manual that used to come in the box with a new computer but it's way [...]

    There's this example What Would Google Do? where Jarvis talks about how newspapers could respond to Huffington Post setting up a new blogging venture in Chicago. He basically says that they should become their new best friend - forget that they are competition and think long term. They'd get more out of magnanimity than being territorial.But, he concludes, it doesn't matter because "news organizations don't yet think that way." The thing is, no one does. People, like Marcus Aurelius said, are "m [...]

    What Would Google Do? is not a book about Google. At least not directly. This is a manifesto for the social web. A book arguing for transparency, openness, and collaboration. A book imploring that we think differently; beseeching businesses to hand over control to their clients; to share and innovate; to develop platforms and networks of trust; to encourage discovery and diversity over secrecy and authority; to adopt a mindset of abundance over the scarcity models of the past. Google is position [...]

    I will use this book in my future entrepreneurial journalism course, and possibly social media as well - which is saying a lot, because I rarely add new required texts. If you read Jarvis' blog/follow him on Twitter etc. and are generally well-read when it comes to digital disruption, there isn't much new here - but it's still an excellent, clear summary of the way not just Google but social media and the web more generally are changing many industries, including journalism, media, and education [...]

    Although I think this book is about 50 pages too long, I still highly recommend it to anyone trying to understand modern economy and culture. I was afraid that it would be a big bowing down to Google, which I see enough of in my career. It isn't. Instead, it is a series of case studies proving how companies like Google are leading a civil movement against closed-system corporation culture. I didn't feel like I needed this paradigm applied to so many industries. Jarvis uses the Google template to [...]

    This might be my favorite read so far of 2009 (although I thoroughly enjoyed Outliers and Here Comes Everybody as well). I love discussing creative disruption and this book is full of that. While some of the best ideas aren't Jeff's (Umair Haque and Fred Wilson are heavy influences and mentioned repeatedly in the book) for me it didn't much matter because of the importance and timeliness of the subject matter. If you're entrepreneur you have to read this book.

    "İtiraf ediyorum: Ben bir riyakarım. Eğer kendi kurallarıma uymuş olsaydım, bu kitabı şu anda okumuyor olacaktınız, en azından bir kitap olarak. Onu linkler ve aramalar aracılığıyla bulup online’da ve ücretsiz okuyor olacaktınız. Siz bu kitapta yapmış olduğum hataları düzeltebiliyor olacaktınız ve ben Google ile ilgili son istatistikleri kitaba ekleyerek onu güncelleyebiliyor olacaktım. Bu kitaptaki fikirler etrafında bir diyalog başlatabilecektik. Bu proje, blogum [...]

    Never before have I wanted to burn a book once I finished it. I bought this at a charity shop to see what an outsider's perspective from 2011 matched with my insider's perspective in 2015. Unfortunately, Jarvis' canonization of the all holy "link" and constant chset-pumping of his own resume make me want to save anyone else from wasting their time with this trash. The only friend I would give this book to would be someone I know to be a true masochist.

    I think it is a good start to better understand how Google works. It is not a black hole where all our information goes, behind it were people that made the decisions on how to simulate artificial intelligence. My granny was using Google and was always seeing it like a wise friend. This book give her an understanding on what it is behind the click, each commercial that you get depending on gender and so on. I did not read any similar books so this makes it hard to rate it by comparison. Hope thi [...]

    Posted on my blog at blogftdevelopment:I recently finished reading the book "What Would Google Do?" by author/blogger/journalist Jeff Jarvis. Jarvis is probably recognized primarily as proprietor of the popular blog Buzzmachine. I had an interest in this book right from the start because I am fascinated with the approach Google takes to everything they do: Offering premium services for free and finding alternative ways to make their money. A lot of money.Without giving too much of the book away, [...]

    I can't tell you how happy I am to be done with this book. Since I cannot let a book go without finishing it, this one became an obstacle that prevented me from moving on to other books. It was so repetitive and hollow that I wanted to punch the author for wasting my time and money.The main idea of the book is really interesting and worth delving into, because what Google does is truly great. But Jarvis shouldn't be an author, or, he shouldn't write books. I'm sure he's doing fine writing his bl [...]

    It should be 3.5 stars out of 5 (or somewhere between 3-4 stars).In this book, author Jeff Harvis of BuzzMachine, discusses the concept of "Googlethink". He takes Google and studies what made today's huge company, an enormously successful organization and how that success can be transferred to other industries.The book is divided into 2 parts. The first of which is the answer to "What/Why?" as in "What/Why is Google successful?". Jeff discusses the concepts of "Googlethink" and "Googlejuice". He [...]

    This book is written in two parts. The first outlines the rules for how Google works and is so successful in a digital economy. In essence, he reverse engineers the company. The second part of the book applies these rules to show how different industries can apply these rules to move from being atom-based to being digital, to moving from profiting from scarcity to profiting from abundance.I find the author's cautious but enthusiastic optimism refreshing. So many times these types of books tend t [...]

    I have to admit that the title of this book put me off from the start. Could it be a serious book based on a blatant rip off of WWJD. So I was a bit grumpy to start with, but the author won me over by the end of the book.Jarvis does a pretty good job of pulling apart some of the things that Google has done and tries to apply it to other industries.Google is perhaps give a bit too much credit as being the saviour of all businesses. Google got lucky with Adsense - it was a search company without a [...]

    While the title implies that this is a book about the Internet, this book really covers a much broader topic: This is a book for all types of businesses; restaurants, airlines, real estate companies, computer manufacturers, you name it. Its subject is about figuring out what business a company is really in, and then serving its real customers. Many large companies flail around because they cannot decide on what their real products and services are. The book is about building trust in one's compa [...]

    I love this book -- it is why I selected it for Federal News Radio 1500 AM's Federal News Radio Book Club next month. In the end, this book isn't really about Google. It is about being agile and sharing information and how to operate in a very new and very competitive world.I think it particularly speaks to government, which could use some new ways of thinking.Not all of these ideas are brand new, but Jarvis does a good job building and adding to what has been out there and fleshing out these id [...]

    A quick easy read with a some interesting comparisons of how google and ultimately the internet will open up industries. There were several references to Clue Train Manifesto and many of the positions reminded me of segments of Wikinomics and Naked Conversations but still was worth the time to read.If nothing else it will force you to look at inefficient business processes and the business of innovation itself.

    Jacob Senholt
    Didn't have many expectations for this book, but it actually ended up giving me quite a few ideas. The last chapter on 'generation g', also brings up some interesting perspectives about the future of the modern world, and especially how technology changes the way we interact and think (resulting in future changes, 'power to the people' etc. as currently evidenced in the Arab Spring risings).

    Michael Carnell
    Hard to give the one a rating. Jeff Jarvis is a brilliant guy and he has some really good insights into Google. The only problem is he tends to repeat himself in the book. Once his point is made, he makes it over and over again. I would recommend really reading the first third, lightly reading the second third, and skimming the final third.

    I managed to slog through this for a Coursera course, but it seems badly thought out and embarrassingly fanboyish about Google, Apple (for some reason) and himself (the whole Dell Hell thing), while gliding over any complications.

    Maybe a bit overoptimistic and too enthusiastic about technology but still an interesting read

    This book dissect how google and other technology platforms basically transformed everything as we know it.Was a real informative read and alters ones approach to conventional ism

    Ada banyak sekali pemikiran baru yang bisa diadaptasi dari cara berpikir Google, beberapa yang saya rangkum diantaranya:1. Kelimpahan melipatgandakan kualitas2. Atom itu membosankan. Pindah dari atom ke bit. Cetak ke online. you name it.3. Buatlah kesalahan dengan baik. Itulah kenapa Google selalu meluncurkan produk Beta4. Mass market is dead, here comes mass of niches. Yang kecil adalah yang besar berikutnya.5. Instead of tax and regulations, Google wants Invention and Investation6. Bersikap te [...]

    When building a business in the Internet age, you need to join a network or provide a platform for others to build networks on.Linking between web pages have changed the structure of media, driving specialization, quality and cooperation. Focus on the content you do best, and simply out source the rest of the content by linking. Interresting tought: Consider making your company’s main product or service free. Many of the worlds largest companies actually do so; Facebook, Google etc.

    The book starts out very interesting and explains various key concepts of the way Google thinks and how you can implement that. About halfway through, however, that has been said. What follows is basically the same concept repeated over and over again. This makes quite a lot of pages redundant. Nonetheless an interesting read.

    Hong Rui
    Quite a heavy read, but extremely informative and insightful to how the world is moving from one that is top-down, to one that is about sharing and cooperative. Might get a bit dry at times, but leads one to think how to apply the concepts discussed in the book to not only our businesses, but also in our daily lives.
