So this will be added to my shelf beside my 4th and 7th editions, providing me with all the updated information needed to practice with today's pharmacopeia.

A must have for medical and graduate level medicinal chemistry/toxicology students.

I have several editions of this book in hard copy since the 1970's. As ever it is very authoritative and a good reference if you have the scientific and medical background to understand it. The only problem with the Kindle version is that the tables and figures are virtually unreadable!

This is the gold standard for pharmacology textbooks, no questions. Excellent update on the last edition. Multi-media is a bit complicated. Would have preferred having online access instead, but can't get it all.
100% tell all my colleagues/fellow students to consider purchasing.

Format: Hardcover
This is indeed the go to book for medicine questions, be you pharmacist, physician, medical student, nurse, nursing student, or whatever. I have been using it for years and will continue to do so.

That being said, there is one quirk that I wish McGraw Hill would fix. With at least two editions I've owned, including the current one, there is an annoying, unexplained switch from a normal font to a very small font. The small font seems to come on without warning, and for my eyes it is very difficult to read. This morning, for example, I was reviewing digoxin. The introductory paragraphs were easy to read, but for unknown reasons the section on adverse effects (and the section following that) was in the small print. Why would you want to make something this important more difficult to read? This change to small font occurs seemingly randomly throughout the text, and is extremely aggravating.

As I age, I will continue to go to Goodman and Gilman for reference, but I hope as my eyes age future editions will eschew this exasperating practice of tiny fonts.

This edition is a worthy enhancement of this classic textbook & valuable referance. There are many new contributors to the multi-authored text, but its valuable format continues. It beats out a recent newcomer in its depth of coverage & ease of use. I think it remains the best general medical pharmicology textbook.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is probably a good desk reference for a physician, but it is a poor instructional aide, and is full of errors and omissions of important information.

This is a 2000 page book, and goes into excruciating detail to the point where the grand scheme is lost. Moreover, the excruciating detail is not well explained, or starts out well explained and abruptly digresses before the explanation's conclusion. The cardiac action potential is one such example.

As an instructional aide, it is very poor. It is very difficult to learn from this book, and some explanations are wrong. As an example, an this book describes an inverse agonist as a type of regulatory ligand that stabilizes a receptor in its inactive form, which is incorrect. It should be described as a type of regulatory ligand that reduces activity below a receptor's basal rate.

There are numerous errors in page layout that affect the way the outline of the material is perceived. As an example, in the general principles section where the physiological receptors are presented, there is a nice table showing the various types of receptors. The body of the text does not unfold as expected. I will use an outline format as an analogy. A proper presentation would unfold as such:

I. Receptors
A. GPCR
B. ion-gated
C. nuclear receptor
D. etc
1. etc
a. etc

What we get instead is:

A. receptors
1. GPCR
B. ion-gated
I. nuclear receptor
C. etc
1. etc.
a. etc.

The headings are completely screwed up. Nuclear receptor looks like a new section in the chapter.

Also, the book goes back and forth between regular print and microscopic print in the body of the text.

I frequently utilize this text for all my academic research writing in my pharmacology & toxicology program. Overall, this resource provides the reader with the necessary detail s/he will need to know to succeed in pharmacology courses that are offered in professional schools such as pharmacy or medical school and graduate (MS/PhD) pharmacology & toxicology programs. I'm fortunate to have an outstanding prof at my university who is a contributing author in one of these sections in this book. I definitely recommend this book and I'm not just saying that because my prof is a contributing author, for I already used this book long before he became my prof.

No search function for a book this size makes it impossible to look for different things. Unless this is improved I would probably go back to using the paper version.

This book reviews everything in pharmacology with the same quality forever since I began my studies in pharmacology in 70's. I recommend this book for undergraduate and post-graduate students, physicians and any other professional in health area.
