More on Amazon's Search Inside the Book

Henry Jenkins has written a glowing review of Amazon's Search Inside the Book service for the MIT Technology Review, October 24, 2003. Note to the Authors Guild: Jenkins supports the theory that free sampling increases net sales. "I racked up a few hundred dollars worth of books last night, books which were totally relevant to my work but which I had never found using the existing browser functions on Amazon."
