Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
A quick-access reference to drugs and their use for beginning and experienced practitioners, using a case-study format. To maintain the small size, only the most essential data is included, and readers are encouraged to consult the primary text referred to for fuller detail and literary documentation. The seventh edition reflects new drug knowledge since 1996, when the sixth appeared. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
