Use Google to Search the Book Search

It seems like it never fails! Quality books always have good indexes, but even good indexes never seem to list the item you're looking for. You can recall reading something about it, but can't remember the topic or even what part of the book it was in.

Google Book Search to the rescue! SfS is now indexed and searchable. Use the Google Search page to quickly easily locate what you're looking for.

Pay attention to the sidebar on the right-hand side of the Google Book Search screen. It will include a list of results with a brief summary for each hit. Your search term will also be highlighted wherever it occurs in the book.

Another scenario: if you're traveling light (as I always do), you can fill idle moments by cranking up your laptop or PDA and reading parts of the book courtesy of Google.
