This is a review of 2005 French book by Jean-Noël Jeanneney, which has been updated and translated into English. The review of Google and the Myth of Universal Knowledge: A View from Europe contains interesting information (written by a Philadelphia Inquirer book critic) from the book itself. Whether Jeanneney's view of Google is correct or not can be argued, but we should be thankful that he has at least given it, so we can see Google from another point of view.
BTW If anyone has read this book, I hope you'll leave a comment with your thoughts about it.

I did read it (in french, of course !) It is necessary to have in mind the fact that this book is targetted to the public at large and not to librarians. So, an expert digital librarian as you are would'nt learn anything from there. Though, the point of view is still interesting to read.
