Description:

How can an award-winning source book that helps consumers find health information be improved? Health expert Alan Rees has done just that in his sixth edition by providing practical advice on using the Internet, tips on where to find Spanish-language health pamphlets, and recommendations on what's most important in the world of alternative medicine. The sixty edition provides users with an annotated guide to health-related resources--hotlines, newsletters, pamphlets, Web sites, CD-ROMS, magazines, books, and more! Readers are given a description on each resource and how to best use it.
