Colophon

Colophon

Our look is the result of reader comments, our own experimentation, and feedback from distribution channels. Distinctive covers complement our distinctive approach to technical topics, breathing personality and life into potentially dry subjects.

The tool on the cover of Google Hacks, Second Edition, is a pair of locking pliers. Locking pliers are very versatile tools. They can be used for turning, twisting, cutting wire, tightening screws and bolts, and clamping. Locking pliers are specially designed to put pressure on a bolt or nut in such a way that the user can approach the nut or bolt from any angle. A simple squeeze can put up to a ton of pressure between the pliers' jaws, enabling them to lock onto even oddly shaped pieces. Locking pliers include a guarded release, which prevents accidental release or pinching, and a trigger, which unlocks the pliers.
