Does the Internet offer anything beyond cybermalls and computer games? Is there anything out there for physicians? As Roger Smith and Margaret Edwards demonstrate in their book The Internet for Physicians, the answer is a resounding, "YES!" This book is a primer to the Internet for physicians who have little or no computer experience. Dr. Smith, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology, and Dr. Edwards, a registered nurse and professor of medical informatics, describe the Internet in plain language. They address how the Internet can be of use to the physician in practice, how one can employ the Internet's various tools, and what hardware and software is required to "log on." In addition, the book provides an extensive listing of Internet medical resources for both physicians and patients. The reader will find this directory, complete with descriptions of each entry, a treasure trove of the information resources available for doctors on the Internet. The Internet for Physicians will give readers the knowledge to keep their medical practices professional, progressive, and on the cutting edge
