Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Dr. Barceloux has once again produced an encyclopedic reference book in medical toxicology. This text should be place alongside Dr. Barceloux’s previous volume on natural toxins and found in every poison control center, reference library, and the personal library of every medical toxicologist. Drug enforcement agencies, forensic toxicologists, and pharmacologists would benefit from the use of this work also. I highly recommended it as the premier work on the topic." (Edward J. Otten, The Journal of Emergency Medicine, April 2013)

“This is an excellent reference work that will be of great interest to all who specialize in abused substances, whether they be analytical chemists, poison information specialists or treatment providers. It deserves to be one of the very first sources consulted when assessing a human exposure to a recreational drug or chemical.” (International Association of Forensic Toxicologists, 1 February 2013)

“Medical Toxicology of Drug Abuseis a comprehensive, well researched, solidly founded treatise on all aspects of synthesized drugs of abuse and psychoactive plants.” (Annals of Emergency Medicine, 1 March 2013)

“It is the nature of text-books that they cannot catch all of the last-minute findings. Medical Toxicology of Drug Abuse includes so much that one must congratulate the accomplishment.” (Journal of Analytical Toxicology, 4 December 2012)

“Aa a member of ACMT, I am constantly amazed at the talent in our organisation. Dr. Barceloux demonstrates his depth of knowledge and excellent writing skills in these recently published textbooks. Both books are an excellent resources for medical toxicologists.” (American College of Medical Toxicology, 1 December 2012)

“Despite this potential omission, Dr. Barceloux must be commended for this tremendous effort. It is rare to have an authoritative encyclopedia of information be predominately written by one person, clearly a labor of love. Without question, this book is a “must have” reference for anyone involved with drugs of abuse.” (Journal of Forensic Sciences, 1 November 2012)
