Read Most of O’Reilly’s Hacks Books for Free Using Google: This works. I tried it for curiosity’s sake, and, sure enough, you can read page after page of tons of O’Reilly books. How is this not a huge hole?
Anyway, I have found a way to read most of their terrific hacks for free using Google Book Search – at least for now. This trick, by the way, works for lots of books, like travel guides. See the end of this post for how I hacked the Frommer’s travel series.
Reminds me of Google-hacking. When does the power of something get so great that it can be used against itself?
