Autocomplete: The Book

Justin Hook


Every time a browser autocompletes our search query, it’s showing us what millions of other people all over the world are searching for. This curious collection showcases the very best of the often strange yet 100% real autocomplete suggestions offered up by popular search engines, compiling them into one hilarious, fascinating, and mildly disturbing volume. Each page contains one search and its 10 best autocomplete suggestions, including the most and least common, from “Why is Ryan Gosling…eating cereal?” to “If the Earth is round…why are shoes flat?” With easy- to-read spreads and playful black-and-white line art throughout, Autocomplete provides a nearly unfiltered look at what people actually search for when they think no one’s watching.
