The book covers the history of Google, through both good and bad decisions.   Stross talks about Google’s branching out from its core technology of search.  Google book search continues to be a timely and controversial topic.

“Google gave users the chance to set up a ‘personal collection’ of book titles, which could be search and also shared with others. “  Look into this.
