Just wanted to know whether Google Hacks http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0596004478/shinilsportal is the best book on Google.

Do you think this is a good book on Google? What are some other good books on Google?

Thanks Garrett for the reply.
I came across this book title in PC Magazine. Bill Machrone had mentioned this book in his article sometime back. For more books on Google, visit this page on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/redirect?tag=shinilsportal&path=tg/listmania/list-browse/-/4VNZCLMQJI92) and http://safari.oreilly.com

Google Hacks is an excellent resource for both the beginner and the advanced user. The authors have included the basics, how to best use Google, Google Web API applications, Google games, and an entire chapter on the webmaster side of Google.
My favorite (so far) is Googlism.com. You can ask Google what it thinks of (a person, a place, or a thing). Trying my full name found an interesting set, while just my first name was really funny.
Google Hacks is written by Tara Calishain (of ResearchBuzz.com) and Rael Dornfest, and has been published by O'Reilly.

Personally, I have liked what I have read & used from 'Hacks', however, what I am looking for has yet to be covered by any books I looked through.
