"Here is the story behind one of the most remarkable Internet successes of our time. Based on scrupulous research and extraordinary access to Google, the book takes you inside the creation and growth of a company whose name is a favorite brand and a standard verb recognized around the world. Its stock is worth more than Disney's and General Motors' combined, its staff eats for free in a dining room that used to be run by a former chef for the Grateful Dead, and its employees traverse the firm's colorful Silicon Valley campus on scooters and inline skates." "The Google Story is the definitive account of the populist media company powered by the world's most advanced technology that in a few short years has revolutionized access to information about everything for everybody everywhere." "In 1998, Moscow-born Sergey Brin and Midwest-born Larry Page dropped out of graduate school at Stanford University to, in their own words, "change the world" through a search engine that would organize every bit of information on the Web for free." "While the company has done exactly that in more than one hundred languages, Google's quest continues as it seeks to add millions of library books, television broadcasts, and more to its searchable database." "Readers will learn about the amazing business acumen and computer wizardry that started the company on its astonishing course; the secret network of computers delivering lightning-fast search results; the unorthodox approach that has enabled it to challenge Microsoft's dominance and shake up Wall Street. Even as it rides high, Google wrestles with difficult choices that will enable it to continue expanding while sustaining the guiding vision of its founders' mantra: don't be evil."--Jacket
The bureau and the mole : the unmasking of Robert Philip Hanssen, the most dangerous double agent in FBI history by David A Vise( Book )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Bureau and the Mole takes you into the shadowy world of Robert Philip Hanssen, a twenty-five-year veteran of the FBI who was a devout Catholic and a devoted family man, who attended the same church and sent his children to the same school as his boss, Bureau Director Louis J. Freeh. But as he emerged from a troubled childhood in Chicago to rise to the highest ranks of America's counterintelligence experts, Hanssen was also leading another life - as a diabolically clever spy for the Russian government." "Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author David A. Vise untangles Hanssen's web of deceit to tell the story of how he avoided detection for decades while becoming the most dangerous double agent in FBI history - and how Freeh and the Bureau eventually rooted him out. Vise probes Hanssen's personal history to uncover how a seemingly All-American boy concealed a sordid sexual life from his family and ultimately became the perfect traitor by employing the very sources and methods his own nation had entrusted him with. Drawing from a wide variety of sources in the FBI, the Justice Department, the White House, and the intelligence community, Vise also interweaves the narrative of how Freeh led the government's desperate search for the betrayer among its own ranks, from the false leads, to the near misses, to its ultimate, shocking conclusion."--Jacket

Eagle on the street : the SEC and Wall Street during the Reagan years by David A Vise( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A "spellbinding account" of Wall Street deregulation in the 1980s, based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post series (The New York Times Book Review). Described by the New York Times Book Review as "worthy of being on the same shelf" as Liar's Poker, Greed and Glory on Wall Street, and Barbarians at the Gate, this eye-opening business history explains how Washington and Wall Street cut the deals that led to a decade of greed. For the Securities and Exchange Commission, the 1980s brought sweeping changes. Under the sway of Reaganomics and the leadership of John Shad, the SEC came down hard on insider trading but introduced wide-ranging deregulation to the stock market, which helped to both fuel the legendary bull market and sow the seeds of the 1987 crash. Shad, a former vice-chairman of the brokerage firm EF Hutton & Company and the first Wall Street executive to lead the SEC since Joseph Kennedy, was a true believer in the free market. His tenure touched all the big headlines and enduring images of this tumultuous decade, from leveraged buyouts to junk bonds, Manhattan skyscrapers to Senate hearing rooms, Michael Milken to T. Boone Pickens. David A. Vise and Steve Coll won the Pulitzer Prize for the original reporting in the Washington Post that would become Eagle on the Street. In an era when the costs, benefits, and risks of deregulation are under debate once again, their "engrossing account of the struggle for the soul of the SEC" is essential reading (The Washington Post)
