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.

I love the Lange series of medical texts - and this one is no exception. Excellent text. Simple to use, clear and concise explanations.

This is the textbook for the pharmacology course I took. Both of Katzung's pharmacology books share the same flaw.

Throughout the class, I noticed that class presentations included drugs not mentioned in other sources (such as Medscape). When I looked into them in more detail, I found that they are simply not available in the US. Many are even unavailable world-wide.

When I mentioned these drugs to the professor, he said they are in "Katzung". When I (reluctanctly) checked, I did indeed find them in Katzung's books. One drug I looked up had not been available, world-wide, for 14 years (plicamycin). That should have been plenty of time for the authors to have made appropriate updates.

While I understand mentioning unique or notable drugs for historical reasons, such as drugs that assisted with major medical advances, a vast majority of the no-longer-available drugs mentioned by Katzung are rather unremarkable. They also tend to be mentioned in a way that makes them appear to be current.

Avoid this book -- unless you like memorizing stuff that you will never encounter (unless you find yourself in some paranoid schizo's 20-year-old nuclear bunker) and want to look stupid during rotations and practice (and when giving lectures) for recommending drugs that haven't been available in decades.

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.
