Tubes: A Journey to the Center of the Internet - Andrew Blum A travelogue of the physical connections (and data centers) that make up today's internet, along with a bit of history on how it came to be. The evocative writing is quite good, some rambling less so - all tolled this is a decent book. It helps that halfway through I listened to Jason Taylor talk all about the data center that I would read about in the last chapter. Some pictures, maps or illustrations might have helped.
