The 7th edition was so much better.

The downside is that not all chapters are accessible on line and that the book is too heavy to carry around in my backpack/bag.
Grad student
This is the must have book for anyone in the pharmacy profession.

I bought this to update from my 7th edition. What a waste of money. The first 13 chapters only give a one page summary and tell you to go to a website to be able to read the chapter. This also occurs for several chapters throughout the book. I went to the website and as of now, it doesn't work. Why did I pay for the book if I'm going to have to go to a website to read it or print it off? The chapters that are in the book are nearly identical to those in the 7th edition. I've gone through about 4 or 5 chapters and they are exactly the same. The other issue is the low quality paper. The paper is like newsprint. It's difficult to read because the printing on the other side can be seen through the paper. You cannot highlight at all because it soaks right through the paper or rips the paper. The 7th edition was so much better.

I have just received a copy of 8th edition from Amazon. This is not a review of the content (which from past editions, I am sure is excellent), but rather of how the book is physically put together.

With the 8th edition, there are more than 2668 (8.5 X 11 inch) pages all bound together in one volume, and the text margins are way too tight towards the spine of the book....and this forces the reader to read text on highly curved pages, or to "dig" for text that is pinched down towards the spine of the book.

The book I received would be much more reader-friendly if its contents were printed over multiple volumes, or if a larger page size had been used along with more accommodating margins.

No page numbers! Really? My assigned reading is by page number, not chapter. A textbook publisher should anticipate this when making the electronic version. Especially if they want over $100.00!

This is the first kindle book I've bought, and I didn't realize that I needed to check if it came with page numbers that match the print edition. I am terribly disappointed that my only choices for this book are a giant 20lb monster or no page numbers!

The pharmacy school I go to updated to this new edition. I bought this new edition purely out of convince for myself as my professors utilize its page numbers as reference points in lecture. This however did not turn out so convenient. I cannot dock stars for content but I WILL dock stars for its shoddy page quality and its demands to go online for content. I own the 7th edition of the text and its page quality was decent. I could read it for extended periods of time and not have my eyes fatigued but this book. It is torturous. Not only can you see through the page the other side of page but the next page after. This is particularly distracting on tables, figures, or photos. I also have to agree with another review that the pages CANNOT be highlighted on. If you want to photocopy a chapter and highlight on it it is also impossible due to the insane margins of the text as they recede deep into the spine of the text and if you attempt to make a copy it will distort.

this book is good reference for clinical pharmacists and students. it covers relevant topics suficiently though it is brief in a few. i do aggree with other readers that the paper quality is not the best because you cannot highlight important text as it is too thin. i did not like the idea of being referred to a website to read topics that were supposed to be covered in the book. overall i think its a good resource

After seeing the cost and size of the textbooks needed for pharmacy school I decided it would be best to start buying Kindle or digital versions of all textbooks that offer those options. I am very very disappointed with this particular book though; the fact that I have to go online to a website to see the majority of the text is ridiculous!! I paid over $100 for a summary of a book!! It does me no good to have a page or two from each chapter when I'm trying to study for an exam. What exactly does the company expect me to do if I don't have internet access when I need to study?

This book contains tons of information that we use in our advanced pharmacology class. I like the fact that I can access some, not all, chapters of this book via the internet & that I do not need to carry it in class all the time. The downside is that not all chapters are accessible on line and that the book is too heavy to carry around in my backpack/bag. The pages are very thin that it made them fragile that even a little tug could potentially tear them. I have already a small tear on one of the pages the first time I opened the book. It would be nice to just have an account that you can access the entire book online so I can read it from my iPad & not deal with the quality of paper the publication company used in this book.

Don't get the kindle edition if you would actually like to read the book. Most chapters just list the main learning objectives and then tell you to go to the book website to read the full text. I bought the kindle version to have to read on my ipad. I shouldn't have had to pay over $100 to be told to go to the publishers website to read it.
