Since its first edition was published 35 years ago, The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics by Goodman and Gilman has assumed the position as the foremost textbook of pharmacology. The current fifth edition continues in fulfilling this role admirably. In a rapidly advancing field like pharmacology it is difficult for the authors to produce a text both up-to-date and encyclopedic. Yet this book manages a near-perfect balance. By condensing the discussions of outmoded or unproven forms of therapy the current edition provides more complete presentations of newer and potentially exciting areas, such as cyclic AMP, prostaglandins, hypothalamic hormones, and histamine H2
