Format: Paperback
The migration of literally thousands of companies and their databases to the Internet has made available a tremendous amount of helpful information about the inner workings of these companies and the products and services they have to offer. The availability of all kinds of information in a variety of formats has given birth to a new breed of corporate employees - research professionals. Linked closely with terminology such as "competitive intelligence" and "data mining," researchers can play an important role in the future of any company doing business today.
Mary Ellen Bates has done the business community a great service by bringing together a handful of some pretty amazing interviews with researchers involved in finding information for business use. Super Searchers Do Business offers readers plenty of useful research tips and ideas gleaned from these researchers already operating in the corporate trenches.
The professional researchers interviewed for this book offer plenty of insightful help. They identify some of the databases they use, the discussion groups and mailing lists they participate in, the journals they read, the electronic newsletters they receive, and some good recommended reading. These resources are listed at the back of the book for convenient reader accessibility. While the use of these resources alone won't guarantee researching success, they do offer a good place to start.
Other helpful insight offered by these researchers includes their advice. Each offer their own angle for success.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is attractive and value-adding for the following reasons: 1. It contains interviews with a cross-section of business researchers, in a largely Q&A format. 2. It contains lists of several useful reference sources, which are also cross-referenced throughout the book. That helps the reader understand the context for each reference source, and determine whether it's going to be useful to the reader or not. 3. The flow of material through the chapters (essentially interviews with the researchers) offers an interesting direction to the whole book. 4. The book is written in a lucid (simple, conversational) style. It's not heavy duty reading. 5. I found it offered practical insights. Good value for money!

This is a great book for anyone who wants to use the Internet or online services to do research. I liked the variety of super searchers who were interviewed, and I learned something from every one. The book is useful and fun to read, too!
