"Comparison charts are used appropriately and are well labeled, quickly orienting readers to the information being presented." "Information…concise and easily navigated." "Overall this book is an excellent condensed drug information reference for clinical pharmacists. Information is organized and presented in a way that makes it more appropriate for use as a therapeutic decision-making tool than similar references. "This book would be useful addition to the collection of any drug information center, medical library, hospital pharmacy, community pharmacy, or clinical pharmacy practitioner."
Journal of the American Board of Family Practice : "Numerous comparison charts are found throughout the monograph section."
Doody's : "This concise, comprehensive, and well-referenced book has been compiled by clinical pharmacists from various universities. This book appears to be superior because it contains more extensive and reliable information and it allows ready access to clinical information on the use of medications, which may aid clinicians in the selection of the most appropriate medication for their patients." "4 Stars"

Book Description
This handbook, which in its early lustrous years served physicians, pharmacists, and pharmacy students, is unlike any other drug reference book in that it allows readers to compare and contrast various drugs within drug categories, thereby enabling them to make decisions on which drug to administer. All other drug reference books merely repeat the drug manufacturers' literature, with no analysis of that information. Nor are there any reports from the published literature concerning use and efficacy of the drugs listed. The clinical drug information with part II contains chapters on drug induced diseases, drug interactions and interferences, drug use in special populations, immunization, medical emergencies, and nutrition support. There are also appendices that contain useful conversion factors, anthropometrics, and laboratory indices.
