Editorial Reviews

Review

, James Monteiro de Barros, Medical Student, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom -- "Reading Principles of Pharmacology has been very rewarding, and I have used it widely for my pre-clinical revision....The layout and content of each chapter in P of P is first class. I got the impression that a lot of thought went into how the textbook would function....The pathophysiology and physiology sections are well-written, and it would appear that a lot of research has gone in to the explanations. The one on heart failure was particularly fine. Have used a few chapters as a basis of the presentations I have given to my tutorial group....When I found myself confused, the diagrams were useful aids....The sections on pharmacology are pitched at the right level. One gets the right balance of how they work (the scientific background) and how they are used clinically. The drug summary charts are useful.... "It does take quite a bit of time to go through a chapter. It is not a book one can flip through for easy revision. Yet, by the end of all the reading, you do feel confident that there isn't much else to know on the subject. "The layout of each chapter has helped me to learn the content. The introductory clinical scenario and opening questions are very useful in getting one's mind prepared for the subject matter. My course uses PBL scenarios widely, so am quite used to the format....The best part of the layout is that it is big picture stuff: it shows the links between the physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology of a clinical scenario. Other pharmacology books explain how drugs works, risk factors etc very well, but not how they all fit in. So one has to remember the pharmacologyfacts not tied to anything else. One ends up doing bitsy research, reading bits from a pile of books. P of P has saved me time. The sequence of clinical scenario, questions, content, answering questions, and then conclusion is the right way of discussing a topic. "The best thing I can say about Principles of Pharmacology is that I have recommended it to friends as a decent investment. The release of a condensed format would be a good idea. My only request is that a hard back copy of P of P available."--James Monteiro de Barros, Medical Student, University of Nottingham, United Kingdom --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
I have taught Medical Pharmacology for 25 years and I hate pharmacology textbooks. In general they give lists of drugs with poor explanations of how drugs act in the human body. To supplement these poor descriptions they add miserable graphs and tables. The underlying basic science of drug action is often left to the reader to find elsewhere. I usually go to a physiology textbook to find the needed physiology, a biochemistry textbook to find the needed biochemistry, or a neurobiology book for the needed neurobiology. I do realize the difficulty in writing a textbook for this subject. Pharmacology is a collection of basic sciences. So how does one put a book together that gives the needed basic science background, the principles of drug action, and keep the book shorter than a Tolstoy novel? Purchase Golan's Principles of Drug Action and find out! This textbook is what I have wanted for many years. The reader is given concise descriptions of the relevant background for understanding the action of the differing groups of drugs. This book is just what a medical student really needs. I now have a textbook that I can heartily recommend to my students. Congratulations and many thanks to the authors of this fine resource!

This book is a beacon for anyone studying pharmacology, biochemistry, or biomedical research. Contents are well organized and comprehensive. Excellent writing, unequivocal and clear; even people with basic college knowledge in biological sciences or chemistry can understand it. I strongly recommend this book as the "bible" for pharmacology. Several useful charts are given at the end of each chapter to illustrate all the pharmaceutical compounds, targets, and mechanism of actions; as well as their adverse effects. Moreover, it has excellent figures that make the reading bearable and graspable.

Superb writing: engaging but rigorous. Methodically laid out with normal physiology first to create the context for both the pathophysiology and treatment. Only complaint in the tables at the end of chapters are blurry in the Kindle version--hope this will be resolved.

Chapters are a great length. Not too long not too short. The case studies in each chapter allow you to apply the information in real life scenarios allowing a better understanding of the material. Easy to read. Highly recommend.

If you bought the Kindle Version for class I hope your instructor can provide e book location numbers because page numbers aren't provided. Good book but I'm very disappointed... I should have just bought the physical version.

I would recommend this product. The book is educaitonal, but it is large. This book provides great review and information that is only a neccessity to medical practice.There is also easy access to all the information with coded indexes available within the book. It has helped me with my education greatly.
