Product Description

Review

"New figures and more focused highlights through the use of color makes this an exciting and almost fun-to-read text. "Once again this tome plowed new ground and sown it with authoritative, comprehensive, and well written compilation of what toxicology's all about and how it affects our world and its inhabitants." (Veterinary Human Toxicology 2002-02-01)

"This book is now an established classic in the field of toxicology. In the time between the fifth and sixth edition, there have been significant advances in research that warrant this edition. When it comes to completeness, there really is no comparable book on the market. " (Doody's 2001-01-01) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Mr. Klassen did a very good job with the sixth edition of the classical Casarett and Doull`s. This is not a book for people scared of details, complex subjects and very long chapters. The book is not what I would call an easy read but I don't think that it should be anyway. Chapters cover diverse topics in a very complete manner, and as another reviewer said this is a book intended for advanced undergraduate courses or graduate toxicology courses. Only buy this book (which by the way is pretty expensive) if you intend to do research or work directly with toxicology. One final note, this is not a book oriented for the clinical setting. If you are a MD or health professional intending to use a book in the toxicological ER you should buy Goldfrank's Toxicologic Emergencies (which is a great book by the way).

This is a must have for the studying ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYST who is determined to KNOW HIS/HER HOMEWORK! As a reference book after course studies and during basic chemistry course fulfillment at the University level, this text is the "command level" of performance. One can not approach correction of injury without knowing the point source and characteristics of the contamination. KNOWING WHERE TO LOOK puts you half way there. The technically squemish need not open the cover. (this is a level 500-600 college textbook) ...textbook referred by chemist/scientist, William Martz

That is a really good book for the beginer of toxicologist. However, there are many errors existed and those errors could mislead and confuse the beginer. I think that we'd better wait for next editions.
