I wanted a reference that gave a more intricate map of the internet's secret treasure trove of information, but this book only told me what I already knew. Good for an intermediate researcher, but I wouldn't call it 'Extreme".

I scored this book only a 3, because quite frankly I was expecting more. Definitely not "Extreme Searching" in any sense of the word.But then I grew up in the early days of the net when search engines were still rather primitive and you really had to have some knowledge of Boolean Logic and Logic Strings to find anything. Not so much now with Google being pretty much idiot-proof.For the advanced web user, there is still some useful information in the book. Plus, it is a quick read, so Why Not?

This book has been very helpful in finding more academic sources for my research. In the old days all the results were either Universities or porn sites - now it's all Wikipedia. This book is about finding more informative and reliable sources. Take it from a retired librarian.

Nice. I was once challenged by one of my college professor's to cite legitimate resources, well my first time I FAILED MMM so I purchased this book and learned how to find TRUE RESOURCE cites (Nice) I highly suggest if you looking for knowledge true knowledge this is the book to buy!

Excellent book! I have used it since the 2nd edition to teach a class on Internet Research. It is up to date and the students find it helpful. The author has excellent credentials in the field. In addition, at $25 it is much more affordable than most college textbooks!

I found this book very helpful for finding almost anything on the internet. Prior t this book I had a difficult time with finding unusual items. The websites and links included alone are worth the purchase price.

I was asked to review this book and how useful it might be for independent serious scholars. It is well to have a book aimed for access by those who might not use or prefer more sedate standard methods, especially as researching online is a special skill. But my personal preference would have been to have less Hollywood hoopla in its style. Oh well. It works.
