Industry Reviews

"The words 'invaluable resource' and 'must read' are bandied about quite a bit in book reviews. But this time we mean it!... For anyone interested in roaming the vast plains of mental health information on the Internet, you could not ask for a better compass. - Professional Counselor; [This] book is the best and most up-to-date overview of online resources for mental health professionals. It not only tells you where to find the good stuff, but also includes a lovely set of quick-and dirty tutorials on essential Net-surfing skills. - Tom Ferguson, MD, Senior Research Fellow for Online Health, The Pew Internet and American Life Project"
