1.  Change the first search window to Title, using the drop down arrow to the right of Any Field.  Enter the following:  companion or handbook or guide.

2.  Change the second search window to Title and enter any term or phrase that might get the book you want.  Put phrases in quotes.

If you get too many hits, go to "Limit to:" and enter a date range, such as 1990 to 2015.  Or change "Search and Sort" to date.  That puts the most recent first.
