D13: Definitive website for research

QUESTION: Is there a definitive website to visit for research?

ANSWER: Along with the search engines we’ve discussed in the chapter, my favorite research site is My mother found the site when I was working on this book. The site is so jam-packed with information that you have to take it in small bites or you can get overwhelmed.
If you need to find a doctor by area of expertise, contact your congressional representative, convert a cooking measurement, read a Tel Aviv newspaper, see the time in Hong Kong, do today’s crossword puzzle, translate a German word . . . Are you starting to get the picture? Visit the site and don’t forget to use the Scroll Bar to reveal all it has to offer.
