There are companies that create waves and those that ride or are drowned by them. As only he can, best selling author Ken Auletta takes readers for a ride on the Google wave, telling the story of how it formed and crashed into traditional media businesses, from newspapers and books to television, movies, and telephones. With unprecedented access to Google's founders and executives, Auletta reveals how the industry is being disrupted and redefined.
