Behind Google's deceptively simple interface is immense power for market and competitive research—if you know how to use it well. Sure, basic searches are easy, but complex searches require specialized skills. This concise book lays bare the full range of Google's powerful search-refinement features, so you can quickly find the specific information you need.

Google Power Search is a brief but direct book(let) on how to exploit Google's various search engine features. Althoug the things discussed in the first two chapters may be readily available in various blogs and forums, the contents of the rest of the book are very valuable. Some advanced and not-so-well-known features are also introduced. I am glad to have found the book as the section on common operators help me immediately in avoiding frustration in looking for what I really want. Finding what I need on the first page of results rather than on the third page is really great. Highly recommended for those who do a lot of searching on the internet, especially those who want to find them quickly.
