The Barnes & Noble Review
Google says it’s out to “organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.” They’ve come a lot further than you realize. But much of Google’s awesome power is hidden just beneath the surface. Google Top 100 Simple Tips & Tricks unearths that power, with friendly, full-color, step-by-step instructions. It’ll help you find just about anything except your socks.

Did you know you can use Google to search a specific web site? (Often, Google’s search features are more effective than the site’s own.) Did you know Google can search for historical events within a specific set of dates, or products within a specific price range? If you have your own Web site, did you realize Google can list all the pages that link to you? Not only are all those goodies covered here: That’s only Chapter 1.

You probably know Google can search for images (it’s the world’s best clip art library). But did you know the tweak that lets it search for audio recordings? Have you noticed Google’s reference tools? You’ll learn how to retrieve a word’s definition, find someone’s phone number, get stock quotes, check airline departure times, even use Google as a metric converter.

Google Top 100 Simple Tips & Tricks offers full chapters on Google’s local search features, the impressive Google News (your portal to 4,500-plus news sources), Google Groups (the world’s largest collection of newsgroup conversations), and of course Froogle, Google’s shopping toolset (like 1,000 malls rolled into one). Best of all, with this book, it’s all surprisingly easy. Maybe by the Second Edition, they’ll have found your socks, too. Bill Camarda, from the February 2005 Read Only
