Dr. Tom Linden's Guide to Online Medicine
by Tom Linden, M.D. and Michelle L. Kienholz
McGraw-Hill (ISBN: 0-07-038055-4)
What can I say about this book? It offers a personal guide to many, many medical resources found
available online, including the big commercial services. And it doesn't limit itself to just the Web, but
includes discussion groups as well as regional BBS's that address specific problems and disorders. It's a
fascinating travel guide to the online world, and offers step-by-step "how-to's" for the beginner. It even
breaks up the monotony of simply listing resources by offering personal reviews of each resource, as well
as personal stories by the people who maintain or use the resources (including yours truly).

The Origin of Illness: Psychological, Physical and Social
Drawing on 30 years of clinical research, this book asserts that envy is humankind's primary pathology, the root of all ills. Norberto R. Keppe has created a scientific methodology that can help uncover internal corruption. This methodology is effective both for those seeking psychotherapy and for those who want to improve their quality of life. This book supplies the necessary tools to construct the strength, resourcefulness, and resilience needed to become happier, healthier, and more loving human beings.
