Those books I purchased at Christmas…

April 30, 2007

The Long Tail: How Endless Choice Is Creating Unlimited Demand
Chris Anderson
ISBN-10: 184413850X
ISBN-13: 978-1844138500

I started reading this on a plane to India. I couldn’t put it down. I read half of the book on the flight out and the other half on the flight back. A very well written book. It hammers home what is essentially a simple principle with lots of examples.

Google’s PageRank and Beyond: The Science of Search Engine
Amy N. Langville, Carl D. Meyer
ISBN-10: 0691122024
ISBN-13: 978-0691122021

IMHO this book is aimed at students. It is very mathematical in nature. It is also littered with typos. If you are a Math or Computer Science student this may be for you.

Brilliant NLP: What the Most Successful People Know, Say and Do
Pat Hutchinson, David Molden
ISBN-10: 0273707892
ISBN-13: 978-0273707899

I didn’t find this book very enlightening. Didn’t live up to the word “Brilliant” in the title.
