    Kyle McAvoy grew up in his father's small-town law office in York, Pennsylvania. He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law Journal, and his future has limitless potential. But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has tried to forget. The secret, though, falls into the hands of the wrong people, and Kyle is forced to take a job he doesn't want, even if it's a job most law students can only dream about....

    Dear Mr Grisham - Your book is fine, but you forgot to write the ending. If you're too jaded to write the ending yourself, surely you could have asked one of your minions to write an ending for you? Give me a day and I'd do it, for free. We paid money for this book - you owe us a duty to actually finish writing it before you put it on sale!

    In a book that's one part prophecy, one part thought experiment, one part manifesto, and one part survival manual, internet impresario and blogging pioneer Jeff Jarvis reverse-engineers Google, the fastest-growing company in history, to discover 40 clear and straightforward rules to manage and live by.

    "It seems that no company truly knows how to prosper in the internet age, except Google."

    These are the opening lines of the book, and so the tone of the book continues: Google is perfect, the rest of the world sucks.

    Any internet user with even a little knowledge knows that the reality of the situation is different: Google does some things well (search and monetising search) and have struggled in achieving traction with their other products.

    Not worth the effort - I suggest reading "The Google Story" instead.
