"This pharmacology textbook is one of the best for teaching a basic pharmacology course. This third edition is markedly improved over the earlier ones. Although designed especially for osteopathic and allopathic medical students, this book also would serve as an excellent text for pharmacy, nursing, and other allied health professions students who are required to take a basic pharmacology course. This book will function as a useful text for both discipline-based and integration-based curricula. Weighted Numerical Score: 98 - 5 Stars!" - Thomas L. Pazdernik, PhD(University of Kansas Medical Center), from Doody’s Reviews
