I recently noticed that Google Books has revamped its search and functionality. While it appears that you still cannot be yelled out by a real-life librarian, it does look as if you can read many books, including "The Developers," via your web browser. Check out the book here.
I noticed that there were a handful of pages missing, but for the most part, it's all there. So, if you can't easily purchase the book or find it at the library, this could be a great alternative. Next time you see me, I'll make sure to check for a valid library card.
