Editorial Reviews

Review

"There are few technical books that remain in a leadership position for 65 years. The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics is one. Physicians, teachers, and medical students have voted for Goodman & Gilman with their feet and with their pocketbooks for over six decades. The question is not whether this is an important and useful text, but why?...While Goodman & Gilman is no quick-read, it is surprisingly clearly written, logical and interesting. It is also an awesome realization to see how much one never knew, added to what one knew but forgot."--The Permanente Journal (The Permanente Journal 2006-08-01)

It has been very helpful with my classes in pharmacy school.
Andrea Medvid
I cannot speak to the rest of this venerable reference, but this chapter was just a rehash (and a big disappointment).

"Goodman & Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics" is one dynamic text, which has made indelible contributions to the study of pharmacology. Its choice of using simple everyday language in explaining complex pharmacological processes is most welcomed. The same could be said concerning the sheer depth of its contents. And, this eleventh edition has succeeded in raising the standard higher. It provides comprehensive, up-to-date coverage on all aspects of clinical pharmacology. Detailed analyses of both drugs and nutritional suppliments were made. The most outstanding being: the fundamental concepts surrounding their pharmacokinetics, mechanisms of action, and clinical applications.
Again, the pages of this excellent book has increased by some one hundred pages over the tenth edition. A significant number of these new pages were dedicated to easy-to-understand Pharmacological charts, chemical structures of drugs, their metabolic pathways, and other related physiological illustrations. Also, various chapters (partcularly those dealing with antibiotics, prophylaxis, critical care, and pediatric prescriptions) have been updated.
I very much appreciate the improvements made on this eleventh edition, yet, my advice to anybody who has already acquired the tenth edition is to stick with it. I frankly see no point in buying this one if you already own the tenth edition.

I am a physician, and recently used the previous (10th) edition as an overview for a presentation I was preparing on opioid analgesics. We just got our new, 11th edition, and I embarked on a comparison of the chapters. To my astonishment, despite the considerable ongoing research in opioid pharmacology, the chapters were practically identical, with the new edition providing NO substantive new information. I cannot speak to the rest of this venerable reference, but this chapter was just a rehash (and a big disappointment).

I can't say that I'm pleased with the new edition. The information is grossly disorganized, there are no introductory chapters, and important information has been omitted or dumbed down, e.g. the section on fat-soluble vitamins, specifically vitamin A.

If you're buying, get the 10th ed. The new edition is definitely a step down for Goodman & Gilman.

The problem with the Kindle version of "Goodman And Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 11th ed." is that you cannot navigate the table of contents. When you scroll down to go to a specific chapter or section, it puts a box around the entire page and does not let you select anything. Since this a large book, scrolling through it page by page is not an option. Customer service states, "I understand you are unable to navigate within your Kindle book's table of content by selecting certain sections. This option is not available for this title because this is an option made available by publishers who provide content to the Kindle store." I contacted them again and hope to get a better solution or someone else to contact concerning this issue. As for now, save your money!

Format: Hardcover
i cant believe there has been no prior review on this text. in any case, this book is "the" gold standard in pharmacology texts for medical students, and perhaps even nurses, physical therapists, and the like. however, this imposing tome is not for the faint of heart. it is definitely packed with essentially everything you need to know about pharmaceutical products used in the healthcare industry. the language can be somewhat imposing as well. but if your looking for an authoritative text on the subject, goodman and gilman's is the book you need. for a milder version, you may want to check bertram katzung's title: basic and clinical pharmacology. otherwise, your in good hands.

Format: Hardcover
This new edition of the classical text book Goodman and Gilmans is further improved. Arguments are clearly exposed, with a preliminary background on the physiology of the organ and functional aspects of each class of drug and chemical compounds. It is an excellent reference book for my lectures on General Physiology to undergraduate students. I often use it also when preparing lectures to PhD students at the School of Neuroscience.

This is the Bible of pharmacology. If you want to know something about a drug, this is the place to find it. If your doctor doesn't have it and refer to it frequently, he should!

This book was recommended for us during first year of medical school. As is typical of things that come from PhD pharmacologists, it completely lacks clinical relevance. If you want to learn how to use common drugs in real patients, this book will not help you.
