Publisher's Summary

An incisive look into the world's most innovative tech company and the man chosen to lead it

On 10 August 2015, an unassuming product expert who learnt his ropes at IIT Kharagpur was declared the next CEO of tech giant Google. Sundar Pichai's appointment was hardly an unexpected one. Pichai is a man known as much for his veritable Midas touch with every product he has developed or led for Google - Chrome, Chrome OS and Android, to name just a few - as for his superlative people skills and open-minded approach to innovation.

Yet, the company's decision to restructure its product lines and appoint Pichai as the head of a leaner, more focused Google, has raised inevitable questions:

  • What does Pichai's role augur for the future of the tech giant?
  • Will Google consolidate its position for existing products or will they focus on creating new ones?
  • And will Pichai transform the organization that Schmidt, Page and Brin created and led, or confirm the belief of a minority of naysayers that he is not yet ready for this daunting role?

Pichai: The Future of Google provides answers to these questions while throwing light on Sundar Pichai's childhood and education; his entry into the tech world and quick rise up the ranks in Google; and his key contributions as a leader and tech-guru to Google's most successful properties.

Timely and insightful, this book offers a rare glimpse into the fascinating ecosystem of a path-breaking company and shows us what it takes to be a dynamic leader in the 21st century.

Don't waste your time. Skip

Written very poorly, it just seems like the author had taken random bits you can find through Google and strung it along to give an "biography" of pichai.

Felt like reading a Wikipedia page

This book is more like a wikipedia page with random ‘googlable’ facts pulled together. No depth of research, no real story and consequently very dry narration. Would not recommend.

Not a biography

The book is not a biography. You can consider it as collection of news opinion articles on Google. The 50 percent of the book portion has written about Google journey.

Interesting, but narration could be better.

Narration sounded very monotonous. Should add some tonality to the narration as well as improve the pace accordingly.

Can not hear narrated with strong Indian accent

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

clear voice, good topic

What could Jagmohan S. Bhanver have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

American narrater, deep tech topic

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Reuel Ferreira?

Other person

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Pichai?

Not deep topic, very short story.

Any additional comments?

longer book.
