Pharmacology,one of the most dreaded subjects in the medical curicullum,has been made relatively easy by this text book.the explanation is lucid, in simple language& the flow charts plenty and self explanatory.Cardio vascular system & central nervous system are dealt with exhaustively.even latest drugs are given a thorough mention.the section on anti microbials could have been a bit more elaborate,but it is just sufficient.apart from this,a separate section on drug interactions,hebals,supplements have been included.a section on prescription writing is a valuable guide.this book will be of great use to both the practising physician and medical students.
