Had to buy this book for a course I was taking, and it was awful. Painfully repetitive and they used far too many abbreviations, many of which were never explained. The online access is just as useless at the book itself. I'll be glad to be rid of this book when my course is over!

This book is difficult to read because it intertwines common sense, almost elementary, statements with out of date terms. Really not valuable for most nurses in today's high tech clinical practice settings.

This is a review of the Kindle version and it only relates to this textbook as it is applied to the Kindle format. I have not tried other textbooks in the kindle format.

This is kindle textbook is basically unusable for my purposes. I am taking a class on Nursing Informatics that requires multiple APA format papers and here is my list of gripes:

1. There are no page numbers. Need to cite what page you are referencing for your paper? Nope! Can't do it! All you have to go off of is the generic Kindle location which is essentially useless.

2. It is not organized into chapters and there is no kindle-usable table of contents. How do you find chapter six? You have to literally search for it with the search function.

3. The search feature will find what you are looking for, but it will put your search text in the upper left corner of your view. Not the whole sentence or paragraph, but only the search text. That means that half of the sentence that you are looking for is on the previous page. Want to see the whole sentence at once? X out of the search function but now you have to find the sentence somewhere on the page. This is beyond frustrating.

4. Need to add a quote to your APA paper? There is no copy and paste! No, I'm not trying to plagiarize, I'm just trying to reference a source in APA format. Nope, because of DRM you have to hand type it.

5. Read each chapter one paragraph at a time! Need to scan the book for relevant information? Nope! You can look manually by searching basically one paragraph at a time, or use the search function for key terms, but if your key terms are prevalent in the book, you'll have to sift through multiple results which is time consuming.

6. Tables are cut off. You thought reading one or two paragraphs at a time was bad, try looking at half a table per page.

If I could give this zero stars I would. This Kindle addition was beyond worthless and caused undue stress in my life. Because of this purchase I will not be buying any more textbooks in the Kindle format. Shame on amazon for releasing such a promising but useless product.

Thought I would hate this book, but it is very readable, not boring and informative about informatics. I was a painless way to learn more about the subject and covers many aspects of technology related to the medical field, education and nurse informatics.

There are so many typos/formatting mistakes in the Kindle version it is very distracting and detracts from the content. You would think a book on informatics would not have so many mistakes. I purchased this to have while traveling so I could read required readings without lugging my book all over, but wish I had just stuck with the printed book...

This was for a required course. All I can say is that this book is sooo boring and dry. Of course this is subjective. We are forced to answer questions directly from this book, but I do not have an iota of interest in the subject matter so I am biased on my review. That being said, it does nothing to engage you as a reader.

I bought this book because I wanted to get into informatics. This book is painfully boring to the extreme. Very hard to understand--it gets obsessed with a supercilious expression of sentence structure rather than trying to communicate information. It says nurses are not very well educated when it comes to computer technology and all must get advanced degrees to be worth something. It was very repetitious as well. I read paragraphs over and over again, and I had not a clue what I read. If you have problems sleeping, read this book. I guarantee you it will cure you of your insomnia so in that respect it is outstanding. The author must have bent over backward to present such a dull and uninteresting book that my original intent to get into informatics was just destroyed. I decided not to get such a certificate.
I'm sure I'm not the only one saying this, but I can't believe they wrote a book about it! It is senseless, iterative and boring.
