This is a must-have-on-your-shelf book that provides a very clear guide on how to use the internet for health information - something that we are all inclined to do. It's written in no-nonsense everyday language so very easy for anybody to understand. A key section explains how to identify credible vs. non-credible information, which is particularly important at the moment with all the false news regarding the pandemic.
I like the fact that the author is explaining that people should not always believe in everything you read. This age of information is not safe in a sense that some information are not accurate and people are relying on it. It is serious that people are more connected to internet reading people’s experiences and allowing themselves to connect with theirs without realising the importance of understanding that there are right people ( medical professionals) who can give them the true information according their health issues.
I am one of those who frequently visiting "uncle Google". I witnessed my colleagues and GPs checking information through Google. It is helpful but dangerous to those people are not careful or who doesn't know where to get a credible information. Seroulsy, if we feel unwell we need to consult a doctor. If in doubt open your internet and go back to discuss with your doctor. Your relationship with your doctor will help you more understand what you have just read. I agree with the author - COMPLIANCE.
I like the fact that this book is simple to use. It is very informative and it's for everyone. This book has changed the way I browse things online. I was not aware of online security features. There is too much information out there which can be misleading sometimes, and it's nice to have a guide to credible sites.
