Book News Annotation:
Although Google doesn't require packaging, this book is part of the publisher's "missing manual" series, which supplies the books that "should have been in the box." Writers Milstein and Dornfest do an excellent job of starting with the basics of the powerful and popular internet search engine, proceeding to sophisticated ways to use Google, and concluding with information for webmasters who want to optimize their sites' interaction with Google, including making money. Tips and notes are highlighted throughout, so those who don't want to read closely can skim and find new things to try. The appendix lists sites for Google-watchers with a habit to feed.
