Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:
"This work of great actuality is divided up into seven big chapters. … Like all the works already existing and devoted to computers, the work includes very numerous pictures under the form of screen photographs … . This excellent manual is intended for all those who are passionate about the Internet under the condition that they are familiar with Shakespeare’s language, and it is recommended to young orthopaedists, practically those concerned by this matter, as well as to seniors who are accustomed to the Web." (Pierre Kehr, European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology, Vol. 14 (1), 2004)
"The unique compilation of orthopaedic-specific information addresses the needs of the orthopaedic surgeon … to find quality information for handling the growing volume of patient’s queries and managing internet resources professionally and securely. … take this book as an ‘invitation’ to look for oneself and learn how to do it. … A glossary of internet terminology is also very useful. This book is a good guide to find out how to use the internet as an orthopaedic surgeon, an orthopaedic resident or a physical therapist." (N. Allington, Acta Orthopaedica Belgica, Vol. 69 (3), 2003)
