Expert Internet Searching @Philbradley

There's a new edition of expert Phil Bradley's book on internet searching.
- Bradley, P. (2017) Expert Internet Searching. 5th edition. London: Facet Publishing. ISBN 9781783302475; Price: (UK) £59.95, CILIP members price: £47.95
"Now fully revised for its fifth edition, this book covers the basics of search before going into detail on how to run advanced and complex searches using a variety of different search engines. This edition has been updated to include current trends in search, such as social media search, fake news, and discussion of the authority and validity of search results. It will ensure that information professionals, whether complete beginners or more experienced, are able to work efficiently to obtain accurate information in a timely fashion."
Apologies, forgot to give the link when I first posted
When you "look inside" the book (a feature which now works) you get a pdf which includes an excerpt from a chapter on "news based search engines".
