"Can't Print?" - by Mark on 04-MAR-2014
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
Book looks good but now that I've paid the tokens for the book, it does not allow me to print it.

This is especially problematic for someone like myself with several eye conditions and dyslexia. To stare at a screen for extended periods just takes to much energy.

Once we pay for it, we should be able to print it.

"I.S. Veteran new to HIT" - by KJS on 11-OCT-2013
Reviewer Rating: 1 star rating2 star rating3 star rating4 star rating5 star rating
I have been only been full time with our local hospital for about 3 months.  However I have been an I.S. professional for nearly 30 years in a number of roles and industries including distribution, warehousing, third-party logistics, telecom, education and consulting.

I found this book to be concise, insightful, thoughtful and plain-speaking to an I.T. professional.  As I read this book, I found it's content to tie with my new experience perfectly and frequently.

I recommend this book to everyone working in HIT or working with HIT, especially those who are new, regardless of their previous experience.
