Although this book is well written and contained much information, there was little information included that is not already available on Google's Help pages for free. Buy this book only if you don't like reading online help pages.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By W Boudville HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on August 5, 2005
Format: Paperback
Sherman offers instructions into how much you can do with Google. Way beyond its signature searching ability. Perhaps the most obvious and successful is its news feeds. An excellent way to read from newspapers all over the world.

Also, in its regular searching, Google stores old versions of many pages it spiders. Sometimes you may find this useful, when a website deletes some of its content before you got to it.

Plus, there are the thousands of newsgroups. Ironically, some of these predate Google and the Web itself. They hark back to when the Internet communication was a much simpler text-based mode.

For programmer types, Sherman explains the Google API. Which lets you write code that programmatically hooks up to Google, without the drawbacks of screen scraping.

With several of the Google options that Sherman describes, it is unclear what profit Google ultimately makes out of them, beyond just mindshare. But I guess its search profits are so lucrative that it can afford to bleed on these other options.

Format: Paperback
I think this is a great book for people that want to know more about searching in general and using google to search-- in particular.

The author has thrown in his vast personal experience and expertise. It shows in the books' tips and search strategies.

He supplements the technical stuff with his real world samples that show the readers how particular google features can be put to good use.

It assembles the most useful links to make it easier for readers to use.

Oh , btw, i am in no way related to the author. :)

Chris Sherman, President of Searchwise LLC, reviews Google in his Google Power: Unleash The Full Potential Of Google. Customize Google for your own fast search needs, differentiate between authoritative references and pop sites lacking authenticity, and recover content that's been removed from the web: these are only a few of the in-depth techniques covered here, and missing in competing titles.
