Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book easily will take any healthcare provider from novice to savvy Internet user in minutes. The goal isn’t to teach medicine, but to help readers find quality tools and medical information without spending hours online. … This book will attract physicians, but it could be used by college faculty and students, reference librarians, patients, and the entire multidisciplinary team. … The authors have very thoughtfully provided tools that range from comfortable to cutting edge." (Kathryn L Fowler, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2009)

“Internet Cool Tools for Physicians is an up-to-date, concise, and easy-to-read book that provides numerous tips and suggestions to allow one to more successfully and quickly navigate through an ever increasingly voluminous World Wide Web. … applicable to numerous other groups including, but not limited to, information technology and picture archiving and communication system personnel, nurses, medical researchers, basic scientists, and medical students, as well as undergraduates who are interested in health care professions … I highly recommend this much-needed and well-planned work.” (Robert D. Stoffey, Radiology, Vol. 256 (1), July, 2010) Aus den Rezensionen: “... Ohne Umschweife: Kaufen Sie sich dieses Buch, und innerhalb eines Wochenendes sind Sie fit. Falls Sie doch noch mehr wissen wollen: Das Englisch der Autoren ist sehr klar und frei von Fachchinesisch, es ist wirklich ein Anwenderbuch für Menschen, die im üblichen Alphabet und nicht in Bits und Bytes denken. ... Das coole Buch ist leicht zu lesen, und Screenshots sorgen für letzte Klarheit. Noch cooler wird es durch die Cartoons von Daniel Mojon. ... Humor ist die beste Medizin …“ (in: ophta Schweizerische Fachzeitschrift für augenärztliche Medizin und Technologie mit Mitteilungen SOG, 2009, Issue 3, S. 252)
