Reviewer Jennifer L. Colon, PharmD, MS, MBA noted that this reference "is a high quality, yet easy to use, reference that is very useful for practicing clinicians.

    More excerpts from the review:

    It is organized based on clinical classes, i.e., antimicrobials, cardiovascular, ENT, etc., to further assist healthcare practitioners in efficiently locating specific information. Codes after the name of each drug identify metabolism and excretion, safety in pregnancy, safety in lactation, DEA controlled substances, and relative cost. The book also highlights the disease or indication in red for each pharmaceutical agent, and it differentiates between child and adult dosing. Finally, it notes the availability of generic, over-the-counter, and scored formulations. Other positive features include ease of readability, excellent organization, and the availability of both mobile and pocket versions.

    I would rate it as equivalent to well known resources from Lexicomp and Micromedex."
