After reading about the problems with book searches I tried the Amazon advanced search for the first time.

Using the search term "force of chaos" (including the quotes) in the book title field resulted in only 3 books, two of them with the term in the title or the subtitle and the third one (shown first) with the plural term Forces of Chaos.

For the example that Fluribus gave above, in the general Kindle search using the terms "character and characters" serling (with quotes as shown) only resulted in the one correct Kindle book and the one correct hardcover book.

The same result was achieved in the advanced search using "character and characters" (with quotes) as the title and serling as the author, except that only the Kindle version was shown.

Perhaps it's not well known that quotes can be used in this manner, both on Amazon and in a Google search.
Beat me to it.

I thought it was generally known.

Even finding Advanced Search may be a problem for a newbie.

There is a link in /Help/ or doing a general search in 'Books' for blank will cause an Advanced Search tab to appear.

Again, I knew quotes could be used but I seldom remember and trying to find "Neil" but not O'Neil is a real pain.

After doing any general search in Kindle Store there's a menu bar above the search results, with the first item being Buy a Kindle and the last item being Advanced Search. That's how I found it for the first time.

Funny enough, I've just had the same problem with the daily diary I mentioned in the chat thread. I put in the full title and it didn't show up on the search at all!

Adding the quotes did help but how many people search a title and are effectively told it doesn't exist?
