The author presents the legal aspects of the practice of pharmacy. However, as in the case of all statutes, revision is almost a continuous process. The utilization of such a manual as a teaching textbook would require many supplements or, what is even more significant, the authentication of all rules and regulations which the various legislative divisions of government are privileged to promulgate.

The value of the book might be enhanced if it more clearly portrayed the responsibilities of the pharmacist to the patient as well as to the members of the allied professions. The text overemphasizes the complexity of law and its procedures, without giving due attention to the simplicity of the ethical principles which underlie the advantageous practice of the profession.
