In a book that's one part prophecy, one part thought experiment, one part manifesto, and one part survival manual, internet impresario and blogging pioneer Jeff Jarvis reverse-engineers Google—the fastest-growing company in history—to discover forty clear and straightforward rules to manage and live by.

At the same time, he illuminates the new worldview of the internet generation: how it challenges and destroys, but also opens up vast new opportunities.

His findings are counterintuitive, imaginative, practical, and above all visionary, giving readers a glimpse of how everyone and everything—from corporations to governments, nations to individuals—must evolve in the Google era. 
                                                                           --Harper Collins

Come and engage in a conversation with Jeff Jarvis, author of What Would Google Do? on how Google's model can be applied to our work in the philanthropic sector.

Limited copies of the book What Would Google Do? will be available for purchase at the meeting for a discounted price.  (Credit card purchase only.)  Make sure to get your book signed by the author!

Watch Jeff Jarvis give a brief description of his book on YouTube.
