DESCRIPTION

However, there’s a bunch of parameters to the constructor that all request types have in common, here they are:
type Defaults to Large, but can also be set to Medium, or Small.
Large The Large type provides everything in Medium as well as music track information, customer reviews, similar products, offers, and accessory data, i.e. the kitchen sink.
Medium The Medium type provides everything in Small as well as sales rank, editorial reviews, and image URLs.
Small The Small type provies ASIN, product title, creator (author, artist, etc.), product group, URL, and manufacturer.
mode Defaults to books, but can be set to other catalog values.
page Defaults to 1, but can be set to a different number to start with a different result page. Used in conjunction with the max_pages parameter of the Net::Amazon object. page is the offset, max_pages is the maximum number of pages pulled in starting at page.
sort Defaults to salesrank, but search results can be sorted in various ways, depending on the type of product returned by the search. Search results may be sorted by the following criteria:
o Featured Items
o Bestselling
o Alphabetical (A-Z and Z-A)
o Price (High to Low and Low to High)
o Publication or Release Date
