I quite liked this book. It covers the internet thematically (e.g. search engines, discussion boards, news) and, essentially, aggregates many types of things into one book. Yes, some of the information on Google and Yahoo is not going to be new, but I learned a lot and I'm someone who is very internet savvy. The best thing about this book is that it is a resource. It doesn't really tell you how to use the internet, but it tells you where on the internet to look if you want to start finding the best types of things. It's other great feature is having a companion website that lists all the links discussed in the book (there are a lot!). Overall, recommended if you want to become more efficient at finding quality information online. ( )

For the "serious" searcher? This book spends about 60 pages talking about Google (as if no one's ever heard of that Internet search tool before). The author points out some helpful hints along the way, but honestly the companion website (available to anyone for free) is probably all you need to know. ( )

This revamped edition also features chapters on popular social networking sites such as Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and LinkedIn as well as a collection of up-to-date screenshots for visual reference. For those with little to moderate searching experience, friendly, easy-to-follow guidelines to the world of Web research are provided, while experienced searchers will discover new perspectives on content and techniques.
