ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.

Who wants to be a millionaire?
Brydon Coverdale did, and dedicated himself to outsmarting quiz masters on every Australian TV and radio trivia format he could - until he became so successful, he was hired by The Chase to stop others from winning.
The Quiz Masters is his fascinating, charming and funny memoir of how he played the game, along the way giving us a how-to guide for anyone who aspires to win a million dollars. As Brydon takes us through his own quizzing journey, he also reveals the psychology behind ordinary people who are prepared to gamble, under maximum pressure, in front of huge audiences, with only their brain in their armoury, and reveals how the great champions developed their special tricks of the trade.
The Quiz Masters truly takes us behind the scenes of a world that's both hugely familiar yet intriguingly unknown.
