From reviews of the previous edition:

‘Brill book for any undergraduate pharmacy student; covers the major therapeutic areas with nice little case studies with answers at the end of each chapter to get you thinking. Additionally, the first few chapters cover generic topics such as biochemical tests with plenty of detail and references. Highly recommend.’

‘A highly informative essential for any pharmacy student. Through my four years of pharmacy education, this book was second only to the BNF in sheer frequency of use.’

‘An excellent book for the pharmacist undertaking a clinical diploma. Clear and very informative.’

‘Excellent book to gain an overall well rounded knowledge of the subject. As much as you need to know as a pharmacy student and pharmacist, if not more. Excellent revision tool for making notes.’

‘If you are about to undertake Non-Medical Prescribing then this is probably the only book you'll need to buy.’

‘Very good book with a good depth of knowledge which is useful for clinical pharmacists, doctors and other healthcare professionals.’

‘This new edition was really very helpful when I was doing an MSc course in Advanced Pharmacy Practice and it was really very helpful in all the clinical diseases I have to read for my PBL. I also used it as one of my most reliable reference books for the in-course simulation ward rounds and other clinical case studies.’

‘It is a great book to have as a practising Clinical or Hospital pharmacist or even Community Pharmacist. It will also be of great use to anyone doing a course in pharmacotherapy. This book will always be of use to you throughout your studentship or when practising after graduation.
It is also more portable than most other pharmacotherapy textbooks with the same amount of information.’
