"The balance of text is more favoured towards the pharmacology aspects. However, the physiology chapters all cover their subject well. The content of the chapter is all of a high standard and would be suitable for those preparing for post-graduate examinations... The book also comes with a link to access to a searchable online version via Expertconsult.com which also includes linkage through Medline to the text of references used and access to a library of the images for each chapter... In summary, this a useful well-written textbook of pharmacology, but both sciences are dealth with to a high standard. The images are excellent and complement the text. I am happy to recommend this book as a useful learning and reference source."
