When Douglas Edwards was interviewed for a marketing job at Google in 1999, by a young man bouncing on a large ball while dressed in roller hockey gear, he suspected he might be working somewhere unconventional.  He had no idea.  He didn't know he was about to have his work/life balance knocked on its inner ear.  He didn't know that data was next to divinity.  He didn't know how many Internet executives could squeeze into a hot tub, or how it felt to 'earn' more in one day than he had in thirty years.  This is the story of how he found out.In I'm Feeling Lucky, Doug, Employee Number 59, takes us inside the hyper-energized world of the Googleplex for the closest look you can get without an ID card -- from its idiosyncratic partners Sergey Brin and Larry Page to its famously 'flat' non-hierarchical structure and its motto: 'don't be evil' -- showing what it's like to survive the g-force of a corporate ascent without precedent, as Google exploded from obscurity to dictionary definition in five short years.Welcome . . .to the 'Google Experience'
