2007 BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION MEDICAL BOOK AWARDS PUBLIC HEALTH CATEGORY Commended - Poisoning and Drug Overdose 5e, Olson 'As a practical bedside manual of toxicology, this book works well. It is easily carried around and easy to use. The book itself is well laid out, accurate and up-to-date. My main criticism is that this book adds little to what is normally available from other sources. There are other texts of similar size, price and quality in the same field and larger more expensive texts covering the same areas as well as other areas. In general, I would expect this book to be used as a reference text in emergency departments. However, UK emergency departments have access to up-to-date information of this type online and it is usual to check the online version to be sure to be up-to-date. Overall though, at this price I would consider it a useful addition to an emergency department library.' BMA REVIEWER QUOTE 2007 BMA News Information 20070927
