I really enjoyed this. I am not in the least a computer geek, but it was really interesting to read about the origins of the internet and learn how the system developed search methods, first by nouns and later by adjectives. I think this would be a good book for older people who enjoy using the internet.

HASH(0x8df87990) out of 5 stars From information to intelligence 21 Oct. 2012
By Nikki - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book takes a look at how new personalization technologies may save us from the current state of information overload. On the one hand, it is amazing the sheer amounts of data that now exists for every subject and every individual, but often we are left wading through endless reams of unorganized info.
Jim Hornthal shows how the next generation of companies will take all this data and turn it into very accurate, personalized answers to virtually every question that may arise. The applications range from medical diagnosis and treatment to entertainment.
The book is well organized and clearly written for both technical and non-technical audiences. The good news is that soon we should be able to do away with getting a gazillion search results on Google when looking for a simple answer on the internet.

HASH(0x8e8f4f54) out of 5 stars Not all that helpful 21 Jan. 2013
By Griffin - Published on Amazon.com

This had some interesting stuff, but most of it was just kind of random rambling about things. It was short enough that this wasn't a big problem, but it's not one I plan to re-read at any point.
HASH(0x8e8f4f0c) out of 5 stars Don't be Misled by Subtitle 31 May 2013
By Aunt Jane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I jumped at the title--"...Cutting Through the Clutter of the Online World to Find..." is what I need in many online searches. Alas, there's no help cutting through the clutter in this book, only promises of things to come.

Jim Hornthal explains the latest trends in personalized search across a wide variety of applications and uses. He does it clearly and with an obvious familiarity with the material. A great read for anyone interested in tailoring the web experience of their uses in today's search environment.
