Abstract:

In this book the author, a master researcher explains how to find what you are looking for quickly, efficiently, and accurately, and how to avoid the most common mistakes of the Google Age. Not your average research book, it shows how to unveil nearly anything about anyone. From top CEOs' salaries to police records, you will learn little known tricks for discovering the exact information you are looking for. You will learn: How to really tap into the power of Google, and why Google is the best place to start a search, but never the best place to finish it. ; The scoop on vast yet little known online resources that search engines cannot scour, such as refdesk.com, ipl.org, the University of Michigan Documents Center, and Project Gutenberg, among many others ; How to access free government resources (and put your tax dollars to good use) ; How to find experts and other people with special knowledge ; How to dig up seemingly confidential information on people and businesses, from public and private companies to nonprofits and international companies.
