It should be noted that this is not a textbook of therapeutics, nor is it a textbook of pharmacology. It bridges the gap between those two disciplines by covering such topics as drug clearance, the half-life, dosing in renal impairment, drug interactions, and compliance with medications.
This book should be very useful for undergraduate medical and pharmacy students, and also for postgraduate trainees in disciplines such as internal medicine and anaesthetics. I highly recommend it.
