The opening sections of this handbook offer generally skimpy descriptions of widely used drugs. Most of its length is occupied by tables on therapeutic uses of classes of drugs giving dosage forms available, dosages, adverse effects, contraindications, precautions, and drug interactions. Its value would be mainly for reminders, rather than for a thorough comprehension of basic principles. Despite its generally undesirable conciseness, it still weighs in as a hefty manual for houseofficers' pockets.
