Book Reviews

"This is an excellent pharmacology textbook which is very readable and well-illustrated. It is both clear and concise and would be helpful for any student who likes pharmacology which is explained in as learnable a way as possible. The 'integrated' idea could perhaps have been expanded upon but, nevertheless, it remains an excellent pharmacology text and one which I would recommend to my fellow colleagues."
