After more than 50 years I have retired from Medical Practice and now no longer classed as a health service provider but a health service consumer. 25 years ago I did a stint in administration and had my pharmacology knowledge updated to the standards of that time. I purchased this book our of interest and perhaps a little self pride at keeping up-to-date. It is fairly complete in covering the range of clinical pharmaceutical issues, well laid out, well written, well illustrated, and set at a useful level of knowledge. It is useful. I know one younger colleague seeing it on my Tablet noted the Title, and the reasonable cost down with the intention of getting onto Amazon for a copy. Although no longer prescribing I feel increasingly confident, if required, to give first class informed consent on pharmacological management. I would like to think that any physician attending me or my family has had some update, such as this volume, over the past decade or so.

The recent revision (12th edition) of Katzung's Basic & Clinical Pharmacology is a great reference book. Chapters are organized based on the drugs' therapeutic effects and each chapter provides a basic overview of the varied drug classes available for different pathologies (e.g., antidepressants and anti-hypertension drugs). Chapters also provide a general review of the adverse and toxic effects of each drug class. The information is not sufficent for a clinician to select a specific drug and dosage to manage the symptoms of a disorder, but it is a great resource to get a general "picture" of the pharmacological options availabe.

It's a great book to have on the shelf and I frequently refer to it when considering the effects drugs outside of my speciality.

I recommend this book to NP students. It provides drug information and prescribing regimens as well as background information on the drug and the class.

Goodman is a great book, but this edition of katzung's pharmacology is the best! I liked the ilustrations and the cases in the beggining of each chapter. Highly recommended!

The material in the book is comprehensive enough for advanced work yet easy to digest. The glossed pages and the font makes reading a little dificult at nights however.

Recommended reading from a Coursera Pharmacology course, so bought it as a Kindle version. Fairly standard coverage, but topics are well covered with Case discussions used in each chapter.

The book has great detail, but that seems to be the main issue. Because of the detail, the book was made very complex and thus harder to read.
