Goodman & Gilman is the Bible of pharmacology as it has been since the first edition written by Louis Goodman and Alfred Gilman and published in 1941. It is the definitive textbook for all medical and pharmacy students and is a must have purchase for residents in internal medicine and pharmacologists. The book is a higher level than our Katzung and should be considered as the perfect accompaniment to the new Harrison. The objective of this textbook/ reference work is to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date correlation of pharmacology with related medical sciences, a reinterpretation of the actions and uses of drug from the view point of the latest advances in medicine and pace emphasis on the application of pharmacodynamics to therapeutics. Throughout its history, Goodman & Gilman has become more than a textbook. It is a working template for effective and rational prescribing of drugs in daily practice. The careful balance of basic science and clinical application has guided students and practitioners to a better understanding of how and why drugs work. The information is presented in a style that reads with maximum clarity and purpose. Transformed and expanded in the last ed
