Python, Amazon, graphs, oh my! : Part 2

In this post we looked at Digital History Hack's proposed reading list and visualised it using using Graphviz's SVG output.

Now lets finish what was started and add in the book titles which are considered considered similar by Amazon.

From the original list, Amazon suggest nearly 780 titles, that's clearly not useful.
I've chosen to limit to those which have at least a third of the number of the most connected.

The new books added as new nodes and have a double circle node shapes.

The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business Is Selling Less of More
Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything
Everyware: The Dawning Age of Ubiquitous Computing
The Victorian Internet

Heres the code graph5.py and the SVG, bitmap below.
