In the era of the Internet and personal digital assistants (PDAs), many of us have noticed fewer textbooks in our offices and workplaces. In an academic emergency department, I rarely work a shift without a resident or student pulling out a PDA or searching a Web site for answers to medical questions. With more and more information readily accessible by these means, why would anyone buy a nearly 2000-page textbook? Perhaps Goldfrank's Toxicologic Emergencies serves as an example of what a good reference text can provide.
