You probably use Google everyday, but do you know... the Google Snake Game? Googledromes? Memecodes? Googlesport? The Google Calculator? Googlepark and Google Weddings? Google hacking, fighting and rhyming?
In this book, you'll find Google-related games, oddities, cartoons, tips, stories and everything else that's fun. Reading it, you won't be the same searcher as before! No programming skills needed.
(From the author of Google Blogoscoped.)
"55 Ways to Have Fun With Google" The variation in style of each chapter was quite refreshing. Some chapters are quite short, others consist of just pictures, there are a couple of quizzes, short stories, a few games you can play with Google, plenty of interesting facts and many other things you can do with Google. ... In conclusion, I think that 55 Ways is an excellent book for anyone who has an interest in Google or just wants to know what else you can do with the most popular search engine in the world. This isn't a complicated reference guide on how to use Google as a tool – it's an entertaining book on how to use Google as a toy! http://ruscoe.net/blog/2006/06/review-55-ways-to-have-fun-with-google.asp
"this book needs an important tag...lol" After i read this book i understood onething... philipp forgot to place an important tag in Coverstory Wonder what ? "Warning this book is highly Addictive to its readers... and will induce your curiosity to expect next edition from Philip" ...lol... Expecting more editions from you..... Congrats on this work...
"hmph..." I'm surprised 10 people out there liked this book. 55 ways to have fun with google? I haven't had any fun yet. 90% of the "hacks" don't even work! History of google? History of the internet? Google promotional items? I dunno, maybe everyone else's expectations were far lower and they were pleasantly surprised, but I expected something interesting and that it is not. This is the first book of hundreds that I actually consider a waste of money. Anyone want to buy my copy? I've had it a week and am seriously considering trashing the thing.
"55 Things . . ." I read Philipp Lenssen's interesting blog and I was looking forward to the book, however, unless you've never heard of Google or you just want to waste a lot of time, I'd recommend saving your 16 bucks for a few lattes.
