[ANN] Taming Search from Manning Publications

Hello folks,

In our work, we all see how the search bar has taken over so many
applications. Look at your smart phone, and you might be surprised at the
large percentage of apps have search as the core component. It doesn't stop
at your phone -- lawyer's law books gather dust as a search engine is used
instead for researching a case. Your doctor might use search to help
diagnose your condition by typing symptoms into a search bar. Each of these
user experiences requires fundamentally different ranking rules that
reflect user vernacular, content, and existing practices in those fields.

Yet still the day-to-day work of improving the quality of search results --
search relevance -- continues to be an undefined practice. As we announced
https://www.elastic.co/blog/introducing-taming-search on the Elastic blog
a few days ago, we're writing Taming Search http://manning.com/turnbull
to capture our many years of solving search relevance problems using
Lucene-based search. Taming Search marries broadly applicable insights from
Information Retrieval (the science behind search) with OpenSource
Connection's http://opensourceconnections.com combined decades of
hands-on relevance tuning experience across many domains.

Taming Search is currently available in Manning's Early Access Program
(MEAP). We're happy to extend offer code mlturnbull to get 50% off any
. These steep offer codes tend to mostly stick around in the
early-access phase, so take advantage now http://manning.com/turnbull.

Please let me or John know if you have any thoughts on the book. We know
there's a ton of expertise out there, and we love hearing about your
insights on search relevancy and the great work that is happening in this

John and Doug
