I am intrigued with the coverage of Google since it went public about 15 months ago, primarily for reasons that have to do with jealousy. You see, in the Economics Reporting class that I teach, each of the students is required to own and manage a portfolio of at least five stocks, starting with a fictitious $10,000. All of the students who are kicking my butt, and there are a lot of them, have Google in their portfolio.
That’s why I’m interested in reading the new book about Google, which is the first book to come out about the Internet company. There was a review of it in Saturday’s New York Times. You can read it here. If you don’t want to read the review but want to go to your local bookstore to buy a copy, the book is simply called “The Google Story.”
