Sauers gives some detailed step-by-step walk-throughs of a number of Web tools. It just seems like they don't need them; users can discover how the tools work by trying them. But he gives some strategies on how to use them when you're searching for information. I especially enjoyed his suggestion of using the Wayback Machine and Google Cache for websites that no longer exist on their original servers.

This book is especially good for people just learning how to search the Web, especially if they

A really interesting textbook that would be better if it was more up-to-date (it would probably be a 4 star if it wasn't for this). The screenshots were very useful and I was disappointed to see that several of the webpages had actually changed for the worse since 2008 when this was written.
This was a really helpful textbook (!!). I learned a lot that I didn't know about the web and going through some of the exercises (like making a search plug in) were awesome, and super helpful. I feel more at home on the web now, and I'll have some cool tricks up my sleeve as a librarian.
