Came across this new book called The Search authored by John Battelle. An interesting read. Beware: It is not a management classic. It is a chronicle by an award winning journalist and a good one at that. It is a very lengthy filing by a journalist.

Go ahead, read it, if only because no one realized that the Google , ASK and A9 already have enough history to be written about.

A bit expensive in India right now at Rs 984/-.

(Well, I am coming with more on this shortly)
