What is Amazon Whacking?

What is Amazon Whacking?

Here's a challenge involving Amazon.com.
1. Start at a book listed at Amazon.com.
2. Go to another book by selecting a book on the list titled "Customers who bought this book also bought".
3. Go to step 2.
What's the longest path you can find without repeating a book in the path? What books were in your path? How many of the books have you read and would you like to read? What can we learn from this game. In a way, this game is like following a stream through Amazon or following a roller coaster as it whips around the track.
