The "Read less-Learn More" Visual series from Wiley Publishing suits this reviewer just fine. These books, usually priced under $20, are chock full of great information presented in two-page spreads featuring full-color screen shots. Google: Top 100 Simplified Tips & Tricks is the latest in the "Read Less-Learn More Visual" line and it is a keeper. The concise, step-by-step tips and tricks, are on side columns and connect to the screen shots with arrows. It is very easy to follow. Each tip features a meter showing the difficulty level. Almost all the tips introduce a new skills or task or combines multiple skills requiring in-depth knowledge; 2 and 3 respectively on a 4-point scale. At the bottom right of each spread are tips and trivia such as: "Try This", "Did You Know?", and "More Options!". The author, Joe Kraynak, writes in an easy-to-read style and he often provides examples which you can follow through the screen shots and accompanying tips. The screen shots are from Microsoft Internet Explorer's browser and only the toolbar differs from those of other browsers (I use Mozilla) but don't let that bother you.

Google: Top 100 Simplified Tips & Tricks is organized into ten chapters each of which contains ten tips or tricks (Kraynak keeps it simple). The chapters are: 1) Maximize Google Search Options; 2) Search for Images, Video Clips, and Other File Types; 3) Tap the Power of Google's Reference Tools; 4) Enhance Your Browser with Google Tools; 5) Get Your News Through Google News; 6) Explore the Local Scene with Google; 7) Save Money with Google's Froogle; 8) Read and Post Messages in Discussion Forums; 9) Create and Maintain Your Blog; 10) Explore the Power of Google Labs Tools. One chapter that I found intriguing was on creating one's own Blog.

I teach internet searching to senior citizens. I thought this might be a great book, but I was underwhelmed. A few observations:

- Google is changing so quickly and frequently that no printed materials stays current for very long.

- Lots of the "tricks" are so specialized, you would never use them.

But, as it says, the instructions are simple to follow - and that goes a long way!

Although this was once a great book, I made a mistake in not checking the publishing date. The book is simply too old to be of much good due to the changes in Google. However, it does have a bit of helpful information - but, not much!
