BERNHARD R. WINKELMANN, M.D.
To the editor: In the review of the seventh edition of Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, I miss more critical comments by the reviewer (1). I bought the new edition so that I would have the "standard textbook" in (clinical) pharmacology, just as Mandell and colleagues' textbook of infectious disease (2) is the "gold standard" for that field. The new edition of Goodman and Gilman's, although relying on a great tradition, is far from being such a standard in is field.
This new edition has strong points, but it also has its weaknesses. For a 1985 publication
