I expected a clinical, dry read...who but a librarian or teacher reads a book about research strategies? I was surprised to find a pleasantly readable, humorous(!) book which gives great tips for researchers, as well for those of us teaching research skills to our students. Likely not a cover-to-cover book for most, Badke has great tips for gleaning the very best information from your reference searches. Recommended for students and educators.

If you're planning on becoming a librarian or know a student struggling with research papers then just please. Get this. GET this. This is such a gold mine that somewhere a prospector in the West just did the prospector dance.

Badke is extremely thorough in his treatment of research strategy. This book is a valuable resource for teachers who are seeking to improve their skills and for students who are using this as a textbook. A very comprehensive resource for librarians and educators who are teaching information literacy skills and concepts through a thorough research process.
