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.

Badke writes in an approachable, accessible fashion about concepts that often aren't so approachable. As a librarian I appreciate his voice in his writing and the way that he organizes this work.

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.

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.

I wish this were required when I was in undergrad. Every college, graduate school, or seminary student could learn from this well put together book.
