Quotes & Highlights
The book’s title refers to Google headquarters’ informal name, the Googleplex (a portmanteau of “Google” and “complex,” and a nod to the name of an obscure number).
Is it the five-star chefs, free laundry and on-site masseuses that are the secret to Google’s success? Perhaps its unique management style and innovative team? Either way, the revolutionary search engine has so deeply impacted our work and culture that we have turned the company name into a verb. Despite being one of the most successful and celebrated companies in history, Google maintains an air of mystery, and cultural myths abound. How has Google stayed innovative and cutting edge while making the transition to tech giant? What exactly happens inside the elusive Google campus? Writer Steven Levy took a deep dive into Google management, its products and its company culture, based upon the research that resulted in his latest book, In the Plex. Join the crowd at the Commonwealth Club as he shares untold stories and unpacks the mythology behind Google.
