Google Apps

Phillip Lenssen, Google Apps Hacks,
O'Reilly

This book could be useful for Google app users to get a little more out of them but it's also useful for website publishers particularly as far as embedding is concerned. Here at Mstation, for example, we decided we'd make a calendar mash-up of music dates and the result is here. And that prompted us to make another one, which might be more useful as an actual calendar, that collected geek events around the world ... here

The book first introduces the Google docs family and then goes through Gmail, Google homepage, the calendar, News, Google reader, maps, and even analytics. The approach of the book, as in the past with this series, is to outline a number of hacks under each sub heading. There are also a number of screenshots to help things along.

Yes, there's some fun to be had here.
