Does anyone who has read the book care to comment on its value?

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.
