It was nice for many of us to meet John at the last conference. At the time we had booked John, we were hoping he would be able to announce the launch of his book at the conference. The timing didn't work out. So, he has done the next best thing and setup a discounted edition for WebmasterWorld members using this link at Barnes and Noble [btob.barnesandnoble.com] to purchase any books.

I'm about 3 chapters in and it's fantastic so far.

I also got a chance to see John read excerpts at his book signing this week in SF, and from what I heard, there's good stuff to come later in the book.

Nah, the B&N discount isn't till you press checkout and then it is applied.

I got the book a few days ago (I had pre-ordered it on Amazon) and have read the first three chapters -- about what search engines were like before Google.

It's definitely interesting reading, and is nostalgic rather than anything "mind-blowing", so far. The style is fresh and anecdotal, and there are some good interviews, such as with the guy who almost single-handedly invented AltaVista (and how bitter he is now!).

John's book hasn't made me think any differently about search, or the importance of search (yet?) but I suppose he's "preaching to the converted" in my case, and the case of many WW members.
