Honorable Mention for the 2006 Award for Best Professional/Scholarly Book in Computer & Information Science, Association of American Publishers
[F]or anyone who wants to delve deeply into just how Google's PageRank works, I recommend Google's PageRank and Beyond.---Stephen H. Wildstrom, BusinessWeek
This is a worthwhile book. It offers a comprehensive and erudite presentation of PageRank and related search-engine algorithms, and it is written in an approachable way, given the mathematical foundations involved.---Jonathan Bowen, Times Higher Education Supplement
This book should be at the top of anyone's list as a must-read for those interested in how search engines work and, more specifically how Google is to meet the needs of so many people in so many ways.---Michael W. Berry, SIAM Review
Amy N. Langville and Carl D. Meyer examine the logic, mathematics, and sophistication behind Google's PageRank and other Internet search engine ranking programs. . . . It is an excellent work.---Ian D. Gordon, Library Journal
If I were taking, or teaching, a course in linear algebra today, this book would be a godsend.---Ed Gerstner, Nature Physics
Langville and Meyer present the mathematics in all its detail. . . . But they vary the math with discussions of the many issues involved in building search engines, the 'wars' between search engine developers and those trying to artificially inflate the position of their pages, and the future of search-engine development. . . . Google's PageRank and Beyond makes good reading for anyone, student or professional, who wants to understand the details of search engines.---James Hendler, Physics Today
This book is written for people who are curious about new science and technology as well as for those with more advanced background in matrix theory.... Much of the book can be easily followed by general readers, while understanding the remaining part requires only a good first course in linear algebra. It can be a reference book for people who want to know more about the ideas behind the currently popular search engines, and it provides an introductory text for beginning researchers in the area of information retrieval.---Jiu Ding, Mathemathical Reviews
The book is very attractively and clearly written. The authors succeed to manage in an optimal way the presentation of both basic and more sophisticated concepts involved in the analysis of Google's PageRank, such that the book serves both audiences: the general and the technical scientific public.---Constantin Popa, Zentralblatt MATH
The book under review is excellently written, with a fresh and engaging style. The reader will particularly enjoy the 'Asides' interspersed throughout the text. They contain all kind of entertaining stories, practical tips, and amusing quotes. . . . The book also contains some useful resources for computation.---Pablo Fernández, Mathematical Intelligencer
From the Inside Flap
"Comprehensive and engagingly written. This book should become an important resource for many audiences: applied mathematicians, search industry professionals, and anyone who wants to learn more about how search engines work."--Jon Kleinberg, Cornell University
"I don't think there are any competitive books in print with the same depth and breadth on the topic of search engine ranking. The content is well-organized and well-written."--Michael Berry, University of Tennessee

At this point, the material is in slight need of updating with more recent enhancements to Google's platform like RankBrain, but the book is still a valuable addition to any enthusiast's library. A must-read if you need to know how the stuff works.
I like the aside. it makes me read it over and over again.
Good book with embedded ideas.
The main characteristic of the book is that it covers a subject that is not present in most textbooks of the area.
Great book, Amy -- good work. Shame about the Amazon listing.
