Book Review

Concise Guide to Computers in Clinical Psychiatry

Thomas A. M. Kramer, MD

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

Saying that Computers in Clinical Psychiatry, the new volume in the Concise Guide series from APPI Press, is useful for psychiatrists is similar to saying that the Yellow Pages is useful for finding the phone number of the local pizza place. It is true, but it vastly understates the utility of the document. This book would be useful to anyone seeking answers to basic questions about computers, information systems, and the Internet. It is definitely written with a clinician in mind and some focus on mental health issues, but it is clear, relatively complete, and well organized. An alternative title for this book could be Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Personal Computing.
