Review

"...it is a valuable, easy to use book that should be successful in the marketplace. It is superior to the earlier edition and to other, currently available management books. It is a plus that nearly all examples and cases use pharmacy settings."--Doody's Review Service (Doody's 2008-12-22)

From the Back Cover

Reflecting the real-world challenges facing today's pharmacist, this new text helps you manage nearly every aspect of your career.

Format: Paperback
This is a review of the SECOND edition of "Pharmacy Management".

Co-editors Deselle and Zgarrick have assembled an impressive caste of thirty-six co-authors to present a reasonably thorough overview of management, as it relates to the profession of pharmacy. All authors seem to have firm foundations in academic and/or community pharmacy practice, but have also esteemed themselves as masters of various areas of management theory, particularly as it pertains to healthcare. No one textbook could possibly explain all of management theory and practice in any setting, but the authors do as good a job as any I have seen. In my search of Amazon.com, I could only find at most seven books published in this century that may cover the same wide territory.

My perspective is that of a Canadian physician, certified in lab medicine and primary care, with a master's degree of science in computer engineering, who has recently taken management courses in general management, human resources, marketing and accounting. My current thrust is an entrepreneurial venture that initially did not involve pharmacy but I hypothesized would work better if pharmacy was included in the marketing mix. That led me to read this book. "Pharmacy Management, Second Edition" is the management textbook for the pharmacy school nearest me (the last Canadian book on this topic was published in 1998). My own benchmarks for this review/book report are: "Fundamentals of Management" by Stephen Robbins et al and "Basic Marketing" by William Perrault et al. These are Canadian editions of highly-regarded American textbooks, with Canadian and American co-authors.

I learned a lot from reading this textbook even after taking as many management courses as I have.

I'm preparing for my FPGEE as I am a foreign Pharmacist graduate & licensed. Pharmacy Management was one of the areas on FPGEE blueprint. This book gives you a detailed knowledge on how pharmacy operation on US. But sad to say no question & answer at the end if eachchapter which I needed the most for my exam as challenge on the subject matter. Although at the end of each chapter there is a question for further discussions so it ask you what is your answer to think about. The book gives you a real scenario what was going on on the real world of pharmacy settings. I have the book 2005 copyright I thought I'm buying the latest edition but it's not so but with the price of $8.00 something includes tax & shipping it's a good bargain & it's said used book but looks so brandnew.
