I'm Feeling Lucky: The Confessions of Google Employee Number 59 (by Douglas Edwards)
No, it hasn't been posted earlier.
This appears to be the same author behind most of the posts on the Xooglers blog. That was an outstanding blog when it started. I actually saved copies of quite a few posts from 2005-2006 by Doug Edwards as well as Ron Garret (an engineer, of AdWords fame) and Heather Cairns (an early employee in the HR department). While I'm happy to see the blog is being updated once again (Doug went on hiatus after a year or two, probably to work on this book), it would be nice if all the old posts were still intact.
Thanks, Philip, for posting about this book. It's definitely one I'm curious about.
