Elisabeth's eyes flashed.

With FACTS IN A FLASH, Metter brings hope back to writers who, like me, are completely dumbfounded about finding accurate facts and information on a given subject. This book will put an end to fighting time for the sake of reference. It goes beyond the Internet, which is helpful. Quite a variety of Web addresses and phone numbers.

Her father wrote a book about her surfing experiences, which later was turned into a movie of the same name. The record for the most surfboards stacked on a car is 282 surfboards. The car drove 3. meters near Santa Barbara, C. .

Written by a senior instructor at the Unversity of Colorado in Denver, this invaluable reference work takes the frustration out of research work by presenting an enormous range of resources in one compact volume.'

This book is just what I've wanted and needed. It is in wonderful condition and arrived more promptly than expected. Would definitely purchase from your store again. Thanks!

This book has eliminated the needle-in-the-haystack search for both obvious & obscure facts. The author must surely be familiar with the frustration of having to interrupt a writing flow in order to search hi & lo for facts that oftentimes refuse to be found. Can't imagine how much time this book is saving me on research - my guess is tons!

No matter how accustomed you are to research, or how much you think you know about how to find information, you will benefit from considering all the options in this book -- chances are, there will be a resource or option you haven't considered. For that alone, it's worth the cost of the book. Even though this book came out in 1999, and the internet has changed so much in its offerings since then, I keep this book on my shelf to remind myself of all my options.

I could list the titles of the 13 chapters in this book (Geographical Research, for example), but in order for them to mean anything, I would have to list all the subtopics under each chapter heading -- and that's a lot! So I'll just say that I think this is an excellent resource to have for anybody who needs to do research of any kind.

...a book like this one.
Whether your research needs are in the areas of government, law, culture, history, business, statistics, or verifying quotes and attributions, Metter shows you where to find what you're looking for. She presents access to multiple formats (phone numbers, print publications, CD-ROM, Web and/or subscription data base information) together rather than separately, so that under any heading you instantly have a variety of research approaches at your command. Metter is a recipient of the Excellence in Librarianship Award. It's easy to see why.
Anyone who does research knows librarians are invaluable, friendly, knowledgeable research assistants. Metter takes this happy cliché to a new level. Her "Research Techniques and Strategies" chapter is a straightforward education in and of itself. If you've been baffled by Boolean searches and twitipated by telnet, Metter sets you straight. Whether it's using search engines effectively, learning to tap into The Library of Congress online, interviewing distant experts or making the best use of your local library's interlibrary loan facilities, you'll find clear directions. With Facts, you'll spend less time learning how to do the research and more time doing it. What a relief it is to encounter inclusive research advice that doesn't raise the Internet to levels divine, but treats it as a tool for accessing the wide variety of available resources.
As a former English teacher and devoted library aficionado, I thought I knew a thing or two about research. Perusing "Facts" was a lesson in humility. A boon for writers, but also a great gift for students, teachers and anyone on your list who'd like to know how to find out what they don't know...
