With David’s book as well. It’s a combo deal. Ugh. I knew that was going to happen. But I’m pleased with it, regardless. From it:
“The Google Story” and “The Search” cast those accomplishments in opposite lights. While they overlap considerably – and while both books flatter Google with covers that mimic its brilliantly modest logo – they interpret Google’s ethics and future prospects differently. The sky’s the limit in “The Google Story,” a glowing, sometimes credulous testament to “that Googley sense of magic.” Mr. Battelle takes a more knowing, technical approach and is more inclined to look for trouble.
I’ll take that.
OK, on to the FT awards. A fun day in London today. What a swell city….
