I disagree with the title. Apparently, the book is devoted to the special needs of healthcare professionals who want to use Microsoft Office 2003. Fair enough. But when I look through the contents, there is very little that is inherent to healthcare. Typical is the chapter on PowerPoint usage. The healthcare component is soley in the screen captures of a PowerPoint document, with the string 'Introduction to Medical Informatics'. The other chapters are similar. The so-called healthcare customisation is very superficial. It could easily be swapped out and replaced with examples from engineering, say. And we would still have essentially the same book. Which does at least suggest that there are really no special needs for professionals in this field, if they want to use Office 2003. You should just get a general text on MS Office.
