Blue on Amazon

I'm staring at a book, freshly delivered, on "Earned Value Project Management." It doesn't mention Earned Value Analysis, or anything Blue for that matter.

  1. That's wildcards for you! It couldn't find the exact phrase "earned value analysis" anywhere, so it took one of the words (value) and tried to find similar words. Not sure why "*lue" looked for "blue" as opposed to "glue", or for that matter why it didn't just try and look for "value". There are some oddities in search engines that have baffled me ever since the Verity days.

    As for the Earned Value Project Management book, it contains all three words (numerous times each), just not necessarily together. That's the beauty of the "search within" feature on Amazon.

    Interesting how Amazon UK search seems to deal with things differently to amazon.com.

    How you doing?
