Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Neil Alex, MD (Kaiser Permanente)
Description: This is a remarkably readable, easily understood introduction to the complexities of the Internet and a wide range of medical resources located there.
Purpose: This book is designed for the "bedside professional," and the material is presented with sound, but not extensive, literature references. It is a "hands-on" book, designed to entice clinicians to try the Internet for themselves. The book meets its objectives.
Audience: Any healthcare provider who has not yet experienced the Internet would find this book of value. Although neither author is a national authority, they have put together an extremely strong presentation of highly technical material and have done so in a way which is exciting to read. The illustrations are not glossy, but they are extremely informative and well chosen to illustrate the material covered. The editing is sometimes lax, but the general level of accuracy of the material is high. Much of the book is devoted to a listing of sites of interest medically, with mini-reviews of each. Nearly every specialty will find something of interest here. The listing of phone numbers for major Internet providers is welcome in a book of this type.
Features: This book sets a high standard for an introductory text in a highly technical area. The illustrations, though of less-than-optimal print quality, convey the excitement of the online experience very well. The references are limited but appropriate and current. The book is engagingly written and covers a wide range of highly technical material with minimal use of technical jargon.
Assessment: This book should be in every medical library and on the reading fist of any medical professional who has not yet sampled the Internet directly. It is well written, easy to follow, and an excellent starting point in exploring the breadth of medical information on the Internet. It is highly recommended, and even experienced Internet users may wish to provide a copy to friends in lieu of being used as a "resident expert."
