While written specifically for pharmacy students, this book offers an excellent summary of the essentials of human physiology. Only a brief portion of the text is devoted to pharmacology, discussion being largely restricted to a résumé of the physiological action of some typical drugs. The chapter on quantitative pharmacology places emphasis on the determination of toxicity of therapeutic substances. The concluding chapter is devoted to directions for the preparation of laboratory reagents and should serve as a useful reference for laboratory instructors.
