There are searchers, and then there are Super Searchers. Super Searchers have the ability to find seemingly any type of information, either by teasing it out of a search engine or by using a specialized sleuthing technique developed from lots of experience experimenting and fiddling around with other online search tools.
Tara Calishain rates in my book as one of the world's foremost Super Searchers. Tara's ResearchBuzz is on my short list of must-visit web sites each day. She's also the co-author of Google Hacks, and now she's distilled her knowledge and skills into a new book called Web Search Garage. Needless to say, I recommend it highly.
