More About the Author

Just a quick note to previous readers of Find it Fast: How to Uncover Expert Information on Any Subject (HarperCollins, 5th ed. 2000).

I am currently working on a revision that will be available no later than January 2015. It will be fully revised and include several new sections, including how to analyze social media sites, ranging from Twitter to Facebook to LinkedIn and more for quality effective research as well as the role of big data and social analytics.

For more information, or to get an early release of the book, just drop me a note at robertberkman@gmail.com...

Thanks!
Bob

Format: Paperback
In The Skeptical Business Searcher: The Information Advisor's Guide To Evaluating Web Data, Sites, And Sources, business information expert Robert Berkman identifies the tools and methods for evaluating no-cost online information sources in a fine guide internet researchers will find essential to understanding business site values. Researchers will learn how to gain access to everything from company histories and corporate earnings data to SEC filings and public records of all kinds --and how to recognize the underlying bias and misinformation potentials of any source.
