Many thanks to Chronicle Books for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review

This is one of those books that is completely insane and pointless but that you still love. From the creator of Google Feud, this book is full of random google searches and drawings. It was fun, simple and enjoyable. If you're looking for a quick, little, fun read, pick this up!

I received this book through LibraryThing Early Reviewers.

The title sums up the book: it features a few hundred pages of Google autocompletes, many of which make you worry about the very nature of humanity. (I only know there are 224 pages because the online data says so; for some odd reason, the book lacks pages numbers, which annoyed me when I wanted to make note of some pages to share with my husband.)

The humor very much falls under the category of, "Well, that escalated quickly." I found

I'm sure Justin Hook could have come up with some more creative Google searches than these.

If you've ever taken a deep dive into one of your laptop's browsers to do a search, then you already have become acquainted with the autocomplete possibilities that arise from the task. Just for fun, let this book take the dive for you. No need for pesky numbered pages, just open the book to any random spot, and enjoy. If you are lucky, you'll end up on one of the randomly illustrated pages.

Everyone who has done a Google search has seen some interesting suggestions brought forth by Google, and now the most popular subjects have been put in one handy collection. Some are funny, some are sad, and some are just downright weird.

Free review copy.

Many chuckle-worthy moments. Not as funny as I had hoped.

A humorous look at common Google searches, this book is highly interactive and fun to look at with friends and family.

This was a good breather in between reading novels. It contains common search terms people look up in Google. The entries range from the funny (i.e. I ate an entire onion) to the strange (i.e. where is it legal to own a fox) to the downright creepy (i.e. can a dead person call you). I give it 3 out of 5 stars. Thank you to Chronicle Books for my review copy.

The collection of funny auto-complete entries from Google is somewhat amusing, more so for teenagers than adults. Some parts are humorous, some sad, some thought-provoking, and some just strange. It's not good for reading in order, more for dipping into random spots and reading out loud to a crowd.

A perfect mix of humor and pathos.

(Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this book for review through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program.)

So you know the deal: every time you type a search term into your browser, be it Google or Yahoo or Jeeves or whatever (who are we kidding, Google), the algorithm makes a valiant attempt to predict what you're going to type before you type it. You know, autocomplete. This guess is based, in part, on what its millions of other users are searching for,
