It provides an "at-a-glance" summary of pharmacology in 45 easily digested, bite-sized chunks...The writing is sharp, terse and unambiguous...Any student wanting a concise and accurate overview of pharmacology could do no better than start with this book." The Pharmaceutical Journal "I won't beat around the bush: if you are a pre-clinical medical student and you don't already own this book, buy it...There isn't really another book out there which can complete with this title...The "At a Glance" series has expanded rapidly over the last few years, and this book remains the best of the lot...I would strongly urge you to get this book. There aren't many books out there which I think every student should own. This is one of them." GKT Gazette, March 2003About the Author:
