"Hacks" is O'Reilly's new book series, and I was probably misled by the name. "Google hacks" -- perhaps I expected to learn how to set up world's most powerful search engine to hack into KGB archives in Moscow's basements, no less, and since I still do not know how to do it, I am somewhat disappointed.
Ok, speaking realistically, I did learnt about some Google's functionality I did not know before, I got a good mental map of what people do with its API, I know how its pageRank algorithm works, and TouchGraph Google Browser is cool.
The book should be particularly good for beginner programmers. Most of hacks are written in Perl, and to play with them can be fun.
