    A very good book for all healthcare professionals.

    A very good book for all healthcare professionals. I used to use my PDA as an address book and appointments manager. Reading this book made my usage of my PDA essential to the extent that now I can't afford to round in the hospital without that small machine in my pocket. I liked very much chapter 10 ' Carrying the web wiyh you ' Thank you Dr. Al-Ubaydli. Dr. Fahad Al-Nouri Prince Sultan Cardiac Centre, Riyadh Saudi Arabia.
