Google Guide -- Making Searching Even Easier
The fact that Nancy has been teaching Internet novices is apparent. She takes nothing for granted, and even includes tips on how to navigate a Web page. More savvy users may skip those sections, however, and focus on the practical examples and exercises.
--Pandia Search Engine News

Nancy Blachman's Google Guide is by far the best guide to using Google, for beginners & more intermediate users, that I've seen so far. I see great potential here for plopping patrons down with this self-guided tutorial, instead of the 20 minute "This is Google, this is how you search" lecture.

Google Guide offers help with searching Google, for both the novice and the advanced user. ... The most useful search guides like this one always seems to come from the fringes, not from the company itself.

--LibrarianInBlack.net, resources and discussions for the "tech-librarians-y-default" among us

While the Google search instruction page is helpful, it's a rather bare bones approach, and your guide fills in the gaps. ... I'm glad your guide is available now and will recommend it to anyone new to the internet. I wish it had been available 5 years ago when I was a newbie.
