Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Mary A. Curran, RN, PhD (University of North Carolina-Charlotte)
Description: This instruction manual for the Internet shows the reader how to get online, navigate, find information, communicate, access resources, publish, get help, and search for employment.
Purpose: It is intended to provide the reader with a thorough understanding of how to find and use Internet resources. This book can be used as a classroom teaching aid or a self-instructional guide.
Audience: Written for students of health studies and all healthcare professionals, the book spotlights the fields of nursing, radiography, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, health promotion, and social work.
Features: The book is composed of nine learning units designed to help the reader understand the Internet and explore its components. This exploration is aided by worksheets, guided activities, and question/answer sections. Appendixes, tables, charts, diagrams, and note boxes provide further information. Information updates and extra worksheets are supposed to be available at a special web site maintained by the author. However, I found the recent content to be minimal and outdated.
Assessment: The author has written an interesting book. Much of the book supplies readers with a good understanding for the proper behavior and use of the Internet. However, there are areas where the content could be timelier. In addition, although the Internet is a worldwide resource, some of the information may not be relevant to readers in the U.S.
