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).

5.0 out of 5 stars TECHNICALLY CORRECT Jan. 31 2002
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

1.0 out of 5 stars Many errors April 26 2004
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.
