    What does the world want? According to John Battelle, a company that answers that question can unlock the most intractable riddles of both business and culture. And for the past few years, that's exactly what Google has been doing.

    "Good introduction to the history of search"
    Overall

    This book gives a good overview of the history of search, seen from many sides. When i later listened to "the google story", which is much more biased to google, it was very good to have a much broader knowledge about what actually happened. the writer obviously is a real insider, who knows or has met many of the players in the field.
    It also talks about the future of search, with for instance mobilephones.
    While not a throughout history of any company, it is great as an overview.

    The narrator, who is also the author of the book, has a very comfortable voice to listen to.

    Only problem about the book? Too short!
