I have a brother-in-law (who is nonetheless a very good guy) who is pretty
well placed at Google in Mountain View. Though I have not used the book
search utility much myself, I have told him about ADS being in general
uproar and dismay over its failings and discussed possible courses of
action. He thinks he can perhaps start things rolling to get it
fixed/improved. If y'all would be interested in my following up on this I
will be happy to do so. What I need to do is put together a case, or
argument, that is very specific and convincing with examples and suggestions
and so forth from all you folks about exactly what is wrong with it and what
needs fixing/how to fix it. I will send this to my B-I-L and he will see
that it gets to the right people in Google. Idea would then be to start a
continuing dialog with them as they go forward with the Books project.
