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, barebones book captures much of what is in medication package inserts, but also has many additional practical facts. There are many very useful tables, such as inhaled steroid comparisons, oral contraceptive comparisons, and anticoagulation dosing that are extremely helpful. The book is updated yearly to maintain currency with the introduction of newer medicines. It also is available in a various sized editions and a mobile app version.
Purpose: The purpose is simply to provide a handy reference of the medications encountered in American practice of medicine.
Audience: This is a book for everyone and it is available in three versions, a shirt-pocket size, a lab-coat pocket size, and this desktop reference size.
Features: In addition to very useful tables, there are numerous summary notes with every class of drugs, cost estimates, U.S. and Canadian trade names, and a complete index. Of particular note are the cross-references in the notes and index.
Assessment: This is one of the classics that many clinicians have learned to rely on over the years. This year's version keeps up the tradition. Because medicine transitions so quickly, the yearly update is well worth purchasing to stay current. I recommend this wholeheartedly to everyone in medicine. I remain personally grateful to the editors and editorial board for their work; they have saved me innumerable hours.
