    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    If you have ever wanted to start your own Internet business, make money online, or have a new stream of income, or if you are just curious about the internet phenomenon, then this book is for you. If you are committed to excelling in the 21st century, then an education around how to derive an income from the Internet is a must.

    Overall

    Obviously the author is a savvy marketer and knew that by using Google's name in his title he could piggyback their success to sell his book.

    The author drones on for several chapters with a recounting of the history of the internet. Discussing Moore's law, how Bill Gates got started or burn rates of early dot com bubble companies may be of interest to some but it surely is not what is required or interesting to those who want to "start your own internet business,make money online or have a new stream of income" as the book blurb states.

    If you truly want some specifics and not overused generalities on how to profit on the net, look elsewhere.
