Classification: Fiction

Synopsis:

The Internet can be a vast, intimidating place when you're looking for honest, informative medical information. Sure, you can look up thousands of sites on Google at the click of a mouse, but how do you know if the advice on a particular site is good, or, if followed, might actually worsen your condition?

Now, Harlan Weinberg, a respected critical care doctor, has taken on the challenge to provide up-to-date, helpful information for patients and their families about the resources available on the Internet, exhaustively researching the Web to provide a directory of the best medical websites. Organized by disease or condition, and covering nearly one hundred afflictions from AIDS/HIV medicine to wound care, he offers an annotated list of sites that are both reliable and easy to understand. With Dr. Weinberg's help, you can navigate the Internet with confidence and get the right advice at the right time.
