1. I agree with Jeremy: direct quotes are easily searchable.

2. For citing ideas, when a 550 page book is a bit too broad ;-) then why 
not put at the end of the reference the first phrase of the apra. that you 
are referencing. Such as this random reference:

Hunsinger, J. _Why VT Lost to Stanford_. Miami: Orange Bowl Press. e-book: 
"Wellman's analysis is persuasive".
