An indispensable manual for survival and success that asks the most important question today’s leaders, in any industry, can ask themselves: What would Google do?
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; Make Mistakes Well… and More. He 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 listeners ask questions and solve problems.

Excellent book written and read by Jeff Jarvis himself.
As a fan of TWiG, I decided to listen to this audiobook since it is referred to on the show/podcast a lot. Very useful to understand the backdrop to the current events in the technology and media industries.
