Before I started doing the assigned readings, I was failing the class, but once I cracked this baby open, I was a straight-A student once again. It also helps to have your chemistry book handy. It had forgotten what some of the chemical reactions were and why they mattered. Don't hesitate to stop and look up terms to get the full grasp of what is going on.
Now that I'm in the field, I still use this book all the time. It's way too much info for the average person to remember in detail months or years later, so I review concepts in this book often. I can't imagine the 6th edition has changed very drastically so I will wait until the 7th comes out before spending the money.
I also recommend buying the hard copy b/c you can now buy the Kindle edition for $9.99 or less IF you purchased the hard text new from Amazon.
Seller item as described, no issue with seller
Easy to navigate with useful biochemical diagrams and good coverage of a complex topic.
It has so far been a good text for my work, supplemented with related texts on the topics of interest being the pharmacology of non-xenobiotic substances.
