Also, for each drug class, there is a complete overview of chemical composition, mechanisms of action, indications and contraindications, clinical applications and potential side-effects.

This pharmacology book is solely responsible for my honors grades in pharmacology and on the national boards.
All topics are covered comprehensively, with far greater clinical application than most pharmacology texts.
The chapter organization makes sense, and it is well indexed. This was one of the few med school books I kept and used for years after leaving clinical medicine to go into research.
I used the book for researching medications for family and myself - information on side effects and interactions was very good.
There are almost no illustrations, and few charts, so it's not easy reading, but it is definitely worthwhile.

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY CLOSE TO BEING PERFECT Nov. 7 2002
"Goldman & Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics" is one brain toasting book. It reminds me of the "Principles of Pharmacology: Basic Concepts & Clinical Applications" (edited by Paul Munson). Of course, either of these two books can serve as a reference tool; and although the latter maintains a price advantage, 'Goldman & Gilman's' is more ubiquitous.
It is rich, versatile, and presents well laid-out voluminous chapters. Anyone who reads this book will appreciate how it tackled General Therapeutics, Biochemistry, and Molecular Biology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good....but out of date! Jan. 12 2004
By A Customer
"Goodman & Gilman" has been the staple of pharmacology for many years, and with good reason. While I agree with the other reviewers that it is the gold standard, in the "old days" the book was updated about every 5 years, and this one came out in 1996. Given that the book probably took a couple of years to revise, the information is close to 10 years out of date! As is stated in the Notice on p. xviii, "Medicine is an ever-changing science." I have been waiting for the 10th Edition for some time now...!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is truely *THE* Book on Pharmacology Aug. 13 2002
By A Customer
If you are at all interested in the world of Pharmacology, or require a good grounding in it for your profession, you cannot go past G&G. Whereas it certainly may be somewhat overwhelming in the depth of information, it is always enlightening/informative and after many years out of the field I still find myself going back to it as a reference.
