This is the third edition of Arena's book on poisoning and deserves to be within easy reach of anyone who deals with this problem. It has been extensively updated and it contains excellent sections on general considerations of poisoning, and a comprehensive coverage of occupational hazards and insecticides in addition to the section on drugs. There is also an extensive section on poisonous plants, reptiles, arthropods, insects, and fish.
