Editorial Reviews

Review

Google is much more than a search engine, but most people don't know how to access the other features. This is a big, big book and it will show you the ropes. Get high altitude photos of almost any urban area and have Google label the roads. Have Google show the names and locations of the restaurants. Add driving directions. Read and respond to blogs; create your own blog. And on into the night.

I only wish the book came with an update feature ...

I probably could have googled all this stuff and found it on the computer, but having a book next to me made me excursions into the huge world of Google much easier.
Clutter Hater
This is a great book with a lot of information--the chapters on Google CHECKOUT, ADSENSE, and ADWORDS were especially helpful to me.

As webweaver and search optimizer for my company, I'm always on Internet information overload. There's a lot to be said for any book that gives me ready access to the many topics I need to access only occasionally, as well as the many others I didn't even know I needed to know about. This book excels at taking you into the confusing fine points of using Google. Blogger tags vs. HTML? I finally got it. Self-hosting your blog? Got that, too. The subtleties of sitemaps ... at last! Yes, with a great deal of effort and eye strain you could find much of this information on Google itself. I, for one, am happy to have so much information compiled and printed next to my workstation and to have the author's knowing voice guide me over the speed bumps. A good investment because of the hours of searching it saved me, though probably doomed to a short shelf life. I only wish the book came with an update feature ...

Format: Paperback
Comprehensive and High-Level Bird's Eye View of an impossibly huge collection of:
* Basic, Specialized Searches, and Additional Features,
* Shopping and Product Searches,
* Maps and Directions, Communication Services,
* Multimedia,
* Other Services,
* Google Software Tools,
* Google for Business and Developers,
* Into the future,

This is an impressive work of trying to summarize (even though it took 800 pages) of an impossible huge number Services and Products that are offered by Google. Some of these are totally disjoint, and some really related and extensions of each others.

This is an excellent comprehensive Reference Book to have next to your computer. I was very pleasantly surprised by many things, for example:
* Searching for Financial, University, Technical, and Government information,
* Google alerts and Updates, Making Google Safe for Kids, and other Languages and Translation Capabilities,
* I refined my ability to use to use Maps and Directions,
* I was impressed with Google Answers and Book Search, Tools for desktop, Calendar, and Google Pack,
* Was really happy to find Picasa, which is good image processing Application,
* Found out things about Google Labs, and found the Advanced Search Operators to be extremely helpful for navigation into the book and understanding of it.

Again, as one of the Google Mottos, Michael Miller has made the Impossible, Possible with this book. And not only he has done "No Evil", he has done an excellent job.

I tip-toed into google via Picassa and shortly realized that there is so much to Google that I had to get a book. Found this at the library and decided to buy it. I probably could have googled all this stuff and found it on the computer, but having a book next to me made me excursions into the huge world of Google much easier.

A little out of date. Google is changing too fast to make a a book forth while. I did get it very inexpensively, I would not pay full price for this book.

By far this is the best of all the Google Books that I have seen and read! If you own a website this is a must to put in your toolbox and use. This seller was a great person, on time and the book was in better shape than I expected to see.

This book covered the parts of Google that I wanted to teach older people who are active in groups and clubs. I was not interested in all the apps that are more for business. I found it friendly on all subjects. It is a bit outdated in 2011, but I was able to get what I wanted from it.

Google is still much in the Beta form and changes daily. Everything has to be updated frequently.
