The authors describe the Internet, 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". This second edition covers Internet basics and now includes 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 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. A CD ROM component brings the reader hypertext links to websites with the click of a mouse.
