Format: Mass Market Paperback
A concise, well-organized review of prescription and over-the-counter drugs and how they may interact. You are lucky if your health care provider knows half of what is in this book. If you are taking medication for a chronic condition, this is a must-buy.

Delivered within a timely period. Would have liked to know date of edition prior to purchase. Enjoy the works of these authors and this book has good info not up to date, however.

I didn't know that this was the same book I already had, but the author decided to fancy it up with a new and improved hardback cover...
