Web Search Garage
by Tara Calishain
Publisher: Prentice Hall PTR (August 12, 2004)
ISBN: 0131471481

it's easy to be suspicious of a book about how to use search engines. After all, search engines are designed to be simple to use: You just type in your keywords and go. Web Search Garage takes over at the far end of what is obvious, where author Tara Calishain explains how to use little-known search engines (particularly specialized ones) and unadvertised features of more famous search tools (mainly Google and Yahoo). She also describes some clever hacks that are engine independent, such as the fact that U.S. states have official URLs ending with their postal abbreviation and .us, as in for the state of Washington. You can narrow searches usefully with that bit of knowledge.
