Review
"The author states that this book is specifically written for students in the field of medicine. The material is presented with sufficient detail to serve as an excellent review for medical pharmacology courses, yet concise enough for board review. Students will find this book extremely useful. Likewise, individual faculty will find this a source that will help them streamline their own lecture material...There is no other source that presents high-yield information on drugs so clearly and concisely. 4 Stars!"—Doody's Review Service Doody's 20030614
