"Drugs In Use" focuses on clinical skills, and that is a very useful area for modern pharmacists, both in hospital as well as community... When I was scanning through the book, I got 'stuck' easily by the instructive and fascinating case descriptions...I was learning new things, and this probably is the strength of the book. It helps to translate abstract knowledge into applicable clinical expertise... A good read for pharmacists who are interested in pharmacotherapy."
