    I'm Feeling Lucky: Falling On My Feet in Silicon Valley

    By: Douglas Edwards

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    At forty-one, Doug Edwards was ready to sit back, put his marketing career on autopilot, spend more time with his wife and kids and generally chill out. Instead, he decided to join a cocky internet startup called Google.

    Suddenly his life was no longer his own.

    This is the story of what it's like to work for a boss who is the age of your favourite t-shirt - and is never, ever wrong. To be the square middle-aged guy in an office that resembles a geek fraternity claiming squatters' rights. To put in sixteen-hour days and wonder if you'll ever see your family again. To work with the most brilliant - and annoying - people on earth . . .

    'Edwards walks into the maelstrom of a start-up full of twenty-somethings where visitors generally wonder 'who trashed teh chairman's office?'' Independent

    'A reluctant bystander in a sea of computer geniuses who changed the world.' Seth Godin

    'Imagine a world where nerds reign supreme. That is the universe that Douglas Edwards stepped into in 1999.' Sunday Times
