Hi all: I think I'm in the minority here, but I actually like the search. Yes, you do have to wade through irrelevant things, but especially for specific keyword searches, it's invaluable. I've found three or four books that I wouldn't have thought covered topics I was interested in but that clearly do. Just my two cents. And Jamie, thanks so much for telling me how to use it.
