One of the best books I have listened to this year.
It's everything you would want to know about the development of the internet and what this may or may not imply for the future.
It's entertaining and incredibly well written.
It's as light and entertaining as a ted talk and it still feels that way after 8 hours. The author manages to intertwine the great thinkers of philosophy and literature with the development of the internet in all its parts, great and small. And yet following the discussion through the book is effortless.
IT is often considered a bit boring, but John Naughton gives it life and colours in a literary style that reminds me of Stephen Fry.
The part on copyright law really made me understand the problems lawyers have been discussing for years about the internet.
The narrator also does a very good job, making the book easy to follow and understand, while at the same time being pleasant to the ear.
I find it to be a profound master piece on internet history.
Oh if only I had, had professors like this at university, what delightful pleasure learning would have been…
Thank you John Naughton for this wonderful book.
How the information was presented.
He makes it easy to understand and comprehend.
Laugh, think and go; hmmm...
It was very informative on algorithms development in programming and at the same time entertaining.
"search" by John Batel and from "Gutenberg to Zuckerberg" by John Naughton.
it was good.
If thinking a great deal and saying hmm... is an extreme reaction, then yes.
If you are in finance, data or programming this is an interesting book, giving a good overview over algorithms development.
yes - it's interesting and engaging.
well told, well composed, good combination of history, culture and search facts.
the fantastic future of search
