What People are saying about this

Thomas A. M. Kramer

This is a clearly-written and well-organized book, which is no surprise since it is written by three of the finest teachers of psychiatric informatics. It is perfect for the relative computer novice attempting to upgrade their technology literacy. It appears to be designed for finding the answer to any computer-related question quickly and completely. It is a must-have for the psychiatric clinician who wants to know more about using information technology to facilitate their practice.
