"Patrick's 3rd edition was a fantastic teaching aid at both BSc, MSc level and for postgraduates in medicinal chemistry. The 4th edition promises to be even better with the addition of en vogue areas of medicinal chemistry including protein-protein interactions and case studies of important blockbuster drugs. A fantastic achievement." John Spencer, University of Greenwich
"Overall organisation is improved over the previous edition, and there is a logical progression from general concepts and history to specific therapeutic areas. There is good coverage of recent developments and the case studies are a very good addition as students find that going through case studies is an effective way of learning the principles of medicinal chemistry" A. Ganesan, University of Southampton
Review from previous edition "Patrick provides a useful and comprehensive introduction to Medicinal Chemistry. It is appropriate for undergraduate level teaching, but also a valuable resource at a more advanced level. The main strength of the book is the breadth of material covered and the accessibility in which the material is presented." Gerd Wagner, University of East Anglia
Review from previous edition "Medicinal Chemistry is excellent-- the best available for undergraduate teaching. Graham is a superb teacher and it shows in the very user-friendly style of the text." Colin Fishwick, University of Leeds
