Unique among pharmacology textbooks, HUMAN PHARMACOLOGY: MOLECULAR TO CLINICAL organizes drugs of a class according to the characteristics of the class, with individual drugs discussed in relation to other drugs of the class. This approach helps students understand strengths and weaknesses of drugs, both in comparison with each other and in certain clinical conditions. The standard format allows for quick reference, and the more than 400 full-color illustrations focus on processes and mechanisms.

Material is current, with changes reflecting today's pharmacotherapy. Unique New Horizons section discusses drugs being evaluated by the FDA for use in the next two to three years. Hundreds of color-coded boxes and tables allow for rapid access, and summary tables are now more "crammable." Superb index gives user quick access to specific information. Hundreds of excellent color illustrations describe important processes, structures, and interactions. USMLE-type questions at the ends of chapters allow for on-going self-assessment.
