Book Description

What′s the question every business should be asking itself? According to Jeff Jarvis, it′s WHAT WOULD GOOGLE DO? If you′re not thinking or acting like Google--the fastest-growing company in the history of the world-then you′re not going to survive, let alone prosper, in the Internet age. To demonstrate how to emulate Google, Jarvis lays out his laws of what he calls "the new Google century," including such insights as:

Think Distributed

Become a Platform

Join the Post-Scarcity, Open-Source, Gift Economy

The Middleman Has Died

Your Worst Customers Are Your Best Friends and Your Best Customers Are Your Partners

Do What You Do Best and Link to the Rest

Get Out of the Way

Make Mistakes Well

... and More

He applies these principles not just to emerging technologies and the Internet, but to other industries--telecommunications, airlines, television, government, healthcare, education, journalism, and yes, book publishing--showing ultimately what the world would look like if Google ran it. The result is an astonishing, mind-opening book that will change the way readers ask questions and solve problems.
