Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This fact-intense, bare-bones drug guide captures much of what is in medication package inserts, but it also includes much additional practical information. The many useful tables are extremely helpful, particularly the cytochrome P450 isozyme table. Also available in a small Deluxe Lab-Coat Pocket Edition and a Classic Shirt Pocket Edition, this publication is updated yearly to remain current.
Purpose: Although there is no preface and one is unnecessary, it is clear that the intention is to provide a swift memory reference for those in the active practice of medicine. The book clearly meets the implied objectives well.
Audience: This is a reference for everyone. Available in a variety of versions, one may choose which is most helpful.
Features: In addition to very useful tables, there are numerous summary notes with every class of drug, cost estimations, American and Canadian trade names, and a complete index. Of particular note are the cross-references. The 2010 versions have specific tables for treating influenza, and also include a free online subscription. This is one of the classics that many practitioners have learned to rely on over the years. This year's version has kept up the tradition extremely well.
Assessment: Because medicine transitions so quickly, the yearly update is well worth purchasing to stay current. I recommend this wholeheartedly to everyone in medicine. I personally remain grateful to the editors and editorial board for their work; they have saved me innumerable hours.
