User Reviews

  1. In my three decades of Pharmacology & Therapeutics, bulky and laborious good ole Goodman & Gilman is no stranger to me.
    This on the contrary is a very pertinent and concise distillate of above. It is awesomely readable and invaluable for both for the practicing clinician & pharmacist alike.
    Accordingly rate this book by far as the BEST book I have ever read on this topic, in 30 years !.
