Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: This is the most widely used textbook for teaching pharmacology to health professionals. This 11th edition is far superior to any previous editions. Along with updated scientific and medical information, this edition includes several important additions: 1) introducing each chapter with a case study; 2) a drug summary table at the end of each chapter; and 3) many newly created full-color illustrations.
Purpose: The authors' goals are to provide a complete, authoritative, current, and readable textbook of pharmacology for students in health sciences. Testimony to their success is the widespread use of this work as required textbook for pharmacology courses around the world.
Audience: This book is used extensively by thousands of medical, pharmacy, podiatry, nursing, and other health professions students to study pharmacology. Likewise, it remains a valuable resource for residents and practicing physicians.
Features: It comprehensively covers medical pharmacology under the broad headings of basic pharmacology, autonomic drugs, cardiovascular-renal drugs, drugs with important actions on smooth muscle, drugs that act in the central nervous system, drugs used to treat diseases of the blood, inflammation, and gout, endocrine drugs, chemotherapeutic drugs, and toxicology. The addition of full color illustrations, case studies, and drug summary tables makes this edition far superior to previous editions. What I like most is that it is part of McGraw-Hill's AccessMedicine that allows students to have all of the accompanying learning tools and medical information available at one site on either their desktop or tablet computer.
Assessment: I continue to use this book as a required resource for all courses that I teach to medical, nursing, and allied health students. It is authoritative, readable, and supported by numerous learning tools, such as Katzung and Trevor's Review of Pharmacology: Examination and Board Review, 8th edition, Trevor et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2008); Pharmacology Flash Cards, 2nd edition, Brenner (McGraw-Hill, 2009); Case Files: Pharmacology, 2nd edition, Toy et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2008); and others. In my view, there are three very adequate textbooks for teaching a basic course in pharmacology, each with its own unique advantages. The two competitors are Brody's Human Pharmacology: Molecular to Clinical, 5th edition, Wecker et al. (Elsevier, 2009), and Pharmacology, 3rd edition, Brenner and Stevens (Elsevier, 2010). Students would find any of the three to be very easy to use to master an understanding of pharmacology. However, my preference remains Katzung's Basic and Clinical Pharmacology.
