Very Basic Guide - Beginner

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.
