3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive and imperfect, 28 Feb 2011
The light is great and the concept is good but this cover is a little expensive and heavier than most the other non-Amazon covers. My latches were not quite lined up. This led to the kindle slipping out from the bottom latch from time to time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice effort at an tech thriller but room for improvement, 14 Mar 2010
This review is from: Daemon (Hardcover)
This is a page turner and brings in all sorts of entertaining tech based ideas to push the story along. The writing is more Dan Brown than Iain Banks but nevertheless is an enjoyable ride.

Some of the ideas are a little forced but it's always going to be a challenge to explain tech subjects to the lay person while keeping the story moving and without boring those already familiar with the subjects. Overall it's well handled and fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some useful ideas, but oriented towards developers, 21 Mar 2003
I enjoyed the first hundred pages or so of tips and lesser known Google tricks, but the book soon oriented itself towards program developers and the like.
Still, my Google searches have become more productive so should I complain?
