"Comprehensive. Timely. Readable. Interesting. Useful as a textbook and/or reference. Relevant. Highly recommended... It is this reviewer's opinion that this text is useful as a textbook and/or reference. It could easily serve the purpose as a textbook for an undergraduate biomedical engineering elective course, followed by, if possible, a course in database development. The text is highly relevant to engineers working in medicine, and is thus highly recommended." - Paul. H. King, Ph.D., P.E, Vanderbilt University, IEEE Pulse

"...should be required reading for every physician intending to enter a fellowship program in medical informatics, and it is also highly recommended to every doctor and medical student interested in this emerging medical specialty."

"A simply brilliant introduction to this fast developing field which is comprehensive, up to date, and at the same time sophisticated... It should be read by all healthcare professionals."
-2004 BMA Book Awards Judging Panel
