Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD (University of Kansas Medical Center)
Description: The 11th edition of Goodman & Gilman continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative single source on the pharmacology of drugs. The first edition was published by Alfred Gilman and Louis Goodman in 1941. It soon became known as the bible of pharmacology and, even though editorship and chapter authorships have changed continuously from edition to edition, this remains the gold standard of pharmacology textbooks.
Purpose: The editors have done a remarkable job of condensing information from a rapidly expanding field to slightly reduce the number of pages from the previous edition while adhering to the principles of the original authors and retaining the completeness for which the book is known. The editors have standardized the organization to provide readers with essential physiology and basic pharmacology while providing the kinds of details a physician needs to know under easily identifiable headings. The editors have done a marvelous job in achieving the high standards expected by readers.
Audience: Although this publication may be too extensive for most students to read cover to cover while taking a pharmacology course, it should be a required resource for all who study, research, teach, or practice any facet of healthcare involving the use of medications.
Features: The 11th edition continues to provide the most comprehensive, current, and authoritative information on drugs. This latest version has new chapters on drug transporters, drug metabolism, and pharmacogenetics. The print version comes with a non-transferable subscription to an online digital version. Each drug in the digital version is hyperlinked to Gold Standards, Clinical Pharmacology Online, an online database. PDA downloads are available. In my view, this is by far the best electronic database available and includes information on FDA approval and black box warnings, mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics, chemical structure, pill photographs, indications, contraindications, adverse effects, dosages, patient education and much more. References in the digital version are also hyperlinked to PubMed.
Assessment: The print version should be on the reference shelf and the digital version on the computer desktop of all practicing pharmacologists, pharmacists, and physicians.
5 Stars! from Doody
