SUMMARY

Does the Internet offer anything besides cybermalls and computer games? Is there anything out there for physicians? As Roger Smith and Margaret Edwards demonstrate in The Internet for Physicians, 2nd edition, the answer is a resounding "YES!" The authors describe the Internet in clear, easy-to-read language, how it is useful to the physician in practice, how to employ its various tools, and what hardware and software are required to "log on". Building on the success of the 1st edition, The Internet for Physicians, 2nd edition, continues to provide thorough coverage of Internet basics and now includes all-new chapters on advanced issues and options facing the seasoned surfer. Updates address choosing a service provider, search secrets, designing a personal web page, html programming, Internet security, laptop vs desktop, and hardware decisions such as choosing a platform. An expanded glossary explains Internet-related terms and a detailed bibliography suggests further reading. Additionally, the book offers an extensive directory of over 600 Internet medical resources, organized by disease and medical specialty, for both physicians and patients. With each site personally reviewed by Smith, it is a treasure trove of the Internet information available to doctors. What's more, a CD-ROM component brings the reader hypertext links to websites with the click of a mouse. Intelligent, informative, and witty, The Internet for Physicians, 2nd edition, offers medical professionals essential knowledge to keep their practices progressive, professional, and cutting-edge
