This new textbook has been written “for the undergraduate medical student … to prepare for the pharmacologic aspects of the practice that lies ahead.” For this purpose it should serve admirably. Of special interest in this connection are the chapters which deal with broad concepts of pharmacology and the relation of pharmacology to other basic medical sciences. The book can be recommended equally to physicians, pharmacologists and those in the allied medical sciences as an up-to-date and comprehensive source of information about current therapeutic agents.

Drugs are arranged in broad groups on the basis of the types of effects they produce. In the discussions of individual agents, both generic and trade names are given and data are included on source and nature (including structural formula), clinical effects, mode of action, metabolism, dosage and toxicity. Lists of references are provided at the end of each section.
