It is unfortunate that this book has been published. It is full of errors and is poorly organized. The author's attempts at humor are not only inappropriate in an academic text book, but they are also just plain immature (i.e. Referring to the sacral nerves as the 'butt nerves'). I suppose this text was originally intended to be written for dentists and dental students, but the sheer stupidity and immaturity of the text caused the editors to designate it only for the 'dental hygienist' in the title. Your money should not be wasted on this book.

This is a poor excuse for a serious text. There are several errors per chapter. The information is presented in what at first seems a logical approach and then the reader is completely baffled by the authors attempt to clarify a point by muddying the water. There is not enough space here, nor time in the day to point out the numerous problems with this text. If you want a good laugh, puchase this confusing tome. If you want serious literature concerning the subject of therapeutic pharmacology I suggest that one spends their cash with another author.
