Can't believe how much is in this book. 12 Oct. 2012
By Captola - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just finished reading this. I got it from the library but it has so much helpful info in it that I just ordered it for myself. It covers Google and libraries, finding people, public records etc. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants to find things. It discusses syntax tools like using an asterisk and brackets and other info I never heard of before.

You need this book 21 Aug. 2012
By Taffy Akner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Disclosure: I know Don Macleod, and I was part of the team that helped him begin the process of writing this book by curating the class which he first taught on the topic. I'm a journalist now, and everything I know about good Internet research is from the contents of this book. I can easily find out anything about anyone, usually for free, and my searches for information -- be they for a particular study or about an individual, or anything else -- take so much less time because of simple word-choices in my searches. This isn't just about the Internet. It's about learning to think and ask questions in a way that puts you in control of the information you receive. I can't recommend this book, or its author, highly enough.

Terrific book. 29 Jan. 2013
By D. Wolfe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great reference for investigators of all experience levels. For its size and price it is packed with useful sources. Internet tools and sources change rapidly so any publication, regardless of size is quickly obsolete. I have purchased other resources, and have spent years compiling my own list of useful sites. This book is more than just a list, it includes tips on making the best use of the tools it contains.

Very Basic Guide - Beginner 17 Oct. 2013
By _marcus - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This book is for those individuals who are just learning about searching on the Internet; focusing on the Google search engine. The title is subjective and there is nothing "extreme" found within the pages. Chapter 3 "Ins and Outs of Google" provides a simple introduction to search queries syntax but falls short on more advaced search criteria concepts. I did not feel like I got the information I wanted or desired from this book. The rest of the book, in my opinion, reiterates the obvious and provides links (URL's) to sites of interest but nothing that a person could find on their own.

Do not get this book if you are intermediate to advanced with computer technology and already have a strong understanding of the World Wide Web.

If you are very new to how the "Interwebs" works, this book might be right for you.

I use this book to teach information litereacy 4 Feb. 2014
By Laura Roche - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I teach information literacy at the library. I use this book as my aid and think it is the best book on the subject
of online research because:
a) It is written in a friendly and comfortable style
b) It is NOT a textbook
c) It focuses on connections more then the new fad technology

This is a great book and I encourage
Don to write more books for information literacy educators
to share with their students.
