'The very last thing a drug regulator wishes to be able to say is, like Lord Byron (1788-1824), on the publication of his poem Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, 'I awoke one morning and found myself famous.' The twelfth edition of this long-established textbook of clinical pharmacology (first published in 1960) continues its fine tradition of balancing science and practice for improved evidence-based drug therapy and good prescribing in therapeutic settings increasingly complicated by intercurrent disease and polypharmacy. Coverage of all major therapeutic topics by body system. Introductory sections give brief chapter synopses. Case studies where relevant. Covers the needs of the developing world with a focus on practical prescribing and health technology assessment. Definition, tips, brief explanation boxes throughout. Interesting histories, etymologies and provenances of terms throughout. Entertaining footnotes throughout. Fully updated throughout. New co-editor: Fraz Mir, Addenbrooke's Hospital and Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge. Now with free e-book on StudentConsult.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Overall this is an excellent book"

Overall this is an excellent book

'Invaluable reference book with a long, tried history. I would a have to say of all the books on this subject in my library (which includes the massive The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics), Bennett's is the most frequently referenced. No surgery or pharmacy department worthy of the name should be without a copy of the book.'

'Used this book for my prescribing very useful.'

'This book is the best therapeutics pharmacology text I have come across. It is especially useful for prescribers and medical students as it has all the essentials you need to know about most drugs in use.'

'This is an excellent pharmacology text book covering all the major therapeutic topics in a pleasantly readable fashion. The book covers many areas, including drug development and the pharmacokinetic aspects of drugs that are relevant to everyday prescribing, benefiting from the input of a great number of practising doctors with their accompanying years of clinical experience. The book contains numerous amusing references, which certainly managed to stimulate my interest in what can easily become a rather dull and complicated subject. I would highly recommend this book to clinical medical students and indeed to anyone in the medical profession.'
