Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary A. Curran, RN, PhD (University of North Carolina-Charlotte)
Description: This book is directed toward meeting the Internet needs of the working professional nurse.
Purpose: The authors have compiled and described a large and varied list of professional sites. In addition, the authors created a World Wide Web browser file that can directly access the site of choice, put it on a computer disk (for Macintosh and/or Windows), and packaged it with the book.
Audience: Although the book is written for nurses, it does contain resources and information that may be useful to other healthcare providers.
Features: The content is divided into three parts: basic information (introduction, terminology, definitions, caveats, tips, guides, etc.); a cross-referenced subject index of sites (World Wide Web, Listservs, Gophers, Usenet, Telnet); and an annotated alphabetical listing of the sites. Helpful displays and figures included with these sections enhance the content. The graphics speed identification of the different types of sites mentioned in the book and make the resources easy to use.
Assessment: The content is not structured for the total neophyte nor a reader unwilling to invest time learning beyond what is covered in the book. For individuals with a basic familiarity with the Internet and a desire to use their time efficiently, this book offers unique and efficient answers.
Mary A. Curran
This second edition of an Internet guide is an appropriate upgrade for a rapidly changing medium. As in the earlier edition, this book is directed toward meeting the Internet needs of the working professional nurse. Although directed at nurses, it does contain resources and information that may be useful to other healthcare providers. It is divided into three parts. The first part includes four chapters with an introduction and overview. A travel metaphor is used: chapters contain a travel guide, basic travel tips, and ""site-seeing"" tips that introduce the Internet. The fourth chapter explains how to use the next two parts of the book -- the index and directory. The second section contains the index with a paginated list of the site directory, which comprises part three. Sites included in the directory come from the major Internet parameters: the World Wide Web, Gopher, Telnet, Listserv, Usenet, and FTP. The book comes with a floppy disk with an ""html"" file of the listed Internet sites. Readers/users are assumed to have ownership of a web browser and the ability to use it. Although this second edition may seem to follow too soon after the first, it is a needed upgrade. The rapidity of Internet change forces equally rapid guidebook revisions. All the sites included in the expanded listing were assessed for quality, currency, utility, etc. This book, like the technology to which it speaks, works hard to keep the user current.
