When Stanford graduate students Larry Page and Sergey Brin collaborated on the search engine Google, they didn't realize that their invention would soon become so ingrained in Web culture that its name would be used as a verb. As the search engine of choice worldwide, Google ranks Web sites' popularity according to how many other sites link to them, increasing the chances that the desired Web site is in the first few results. More than just a search engine today, Google boasts maps, email, videos, e-commerce, news, social networking, and much more. Larry Page and Sergey Brin shows how the combination of personal decisions and particular opportunities for Page and Brin have led to remarkable results in their professional and personal lives.
