This book was my bible for Pharmacology. Even though "Goodman and Gillman" contains everything there is to know about the subject, which medical school student needs to know all of that. The book first starts each chapter with a review of fundamental physiology of the normal body. Next it describes the drug and its effects on the body. Next comes the clincal pharamcology of the drugs. The understanding of pharmacology from reading this book is unparalleled.

The "Basic & Clinical Pharmacology" may not be the most comprehensive and the most detailed single-volume text available on Pharmacology, but it has a lot of positive attributes. It is straightforward, well-illustrated, and ranks among the lowest-priced voluminous books that contains all the essentials a clinical student or doctor may need.

This book has been a great reference for me as I've gone through medical school. Clear, well written, and with excellent illustrations, the information is easily accessible and quite practical. It may be a little advanced for beginner students, but it's an absolute must have reference for someone with a need to know pharmacology.

Format: Paperback
Keeping true to the reputation of Lange Medical textbooks, this newest edition of the book provides an in-depth coverage of the subject without truly overwhelming the reader. Up-to-date and well cross-referenced, it is of value to both students and practitioners, including dosage schedules, indications, and contraindications, with an interesting chapter on drug abuse as well as useful information on drug interactions. Well worth buying.

This book is basically a summary of Goodman and Gilman, without all the unnecessary detail. A good review text, and lots easier to carry around. Great for quick look-ups.

This is a wonderful book. Now in its seventh edition, it includes great details on physiological mechanisms. Highly recommended, even over Goodman and Gilman.

Katzung is brilliant. This text was an absolute bible for my med school pharmacology course & on rotations. If it's not in the Katzung book you probably don't need to know it. An absolute must to do well on the boards.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Katzung's pharmaology is a perfect book for the Kindle. The diagrams come across perfectly on the greyscale screen (even on my 1st generation Kindle), and it is easily navigable from the table of contents.

Since Katzung is designed to be a quick reference text instead of a full, in-depth treatment of all of the pharmacology surrounding the drugs covered, I am especially grateful for the digital edition. With the Kindle reader for iPod Touch/iPhone, the PC reader, and the soon-to-be-released blackberry reader, I can have my text with me wherever I am for quick reference. For this reason, I am making the move to get more and more textbooks and reference texts for my Kindle.

A text like this is so nice to have searchable. I find myself using the search feature often to zoom right in to the area that I need to read.

Finally, the digital price for this text is so much less than for the print version, it is just too good to pass up. Thank you, Lange, for publishing in Kindle; please keep it up.
