If you have heard the joke “What kind of physician uses the Internet? A ‘URL’ologist,” then Your Health in the Information Age may be just the ticket for you and your patients. This 188-page book takes on the monumental task of offering an excellent exploration of the exponentially expanding world of e-health for readers already searching health information on the Internet as well as for relative newbies. Based on the comments in the forward and on the back cover, one might expect to find a “how to” book. Instead, this book is more of a commentary and provides readers with background knowledge so they can begin their quest for health information on the Internet.
