Editorial Reviews


"With its especially informative and concentrated chapters on the subjects of pharmacology of drugs, medicinal chemistry, mathematics, and pharmacokinetics, Basic Principles is undeniably the best section of the book. In my opinion, the chapters in this section are well worth the price of the book and would be of great benefit to residents in any medical specialty....Overall, the book is well written and the information is very well presented, and it merits both the reputation and the audience it has garnered."
--Canadian Journal of Anesthesia

This book is very good at covering "what" drugs do and how they act. However, it covers no dosing information. If you want to know the "what" its a good buy. A little pricey for the average bear, though.

"Peck & Hill" is well known as an excellent summary of the essential pharmacology required for an anaesthetic primary examination. In that regard, I would consider it a mandatory purchase for anyone attempting that exam.

However, it only aims to be an overview of the material, so you will need to read more deeply in other texts. If one knew Peck & Hill cover to cover, I would guess you'd be 80% of the way there.

For anyone attempting an anaesthetic primary exam, I would recommend that:
(a) You buy your own copy!
(b) You read it once as an introduction to anaesthetic pharmacology. Then move on to deeper reading and study with other resources.
(c) You revisit the book towards the exam, as concise revision.

I didn't quite follow so neat a plan but I wish that I had. Nonetheless, the book will repaid me in spades, as I hope it will you.

Best of luck.
