Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Anyone who has ever searched for or may someday search for online medical information will find this book a treasure. Its strength lies in its ability to guide readers to the specific online medical resources they may be seeking. The authors, one a medical doctor and journalist and the other a freelance medical writer, provide readers with descriptions and an understanding of specific medical and medical-related online databases, bulletin boards, discussion groups, and Internet resources covering a range of subjects from cancer to neurologic disorders to alternative medicine. The authors also provide sound advice on determining the integrity of and effectively using the online information obtained. Included in the appendixes is an explanation of online resources for healthcare professionals. Medical consumers and medical professionals as well as librarians will find this book useful. Recommended for public and academic libraries of all sizes.-Kathleen Low, California State Lib., Sacramento
