This is the latest publication by Modell of a practical text on therapeutics that has had eight previous editions. The chapters are organized to deal with broad categories of conditions such as drugs for gastrointestinal diseases, drugs for arthritis and rheumatic disease, and drugs for cancer. The book will serve as a practical guide to therapy in a wide variety of disorders but lacks detail in some instances and occasionally fails to emphasize serious toxicity or side effects. The drug index is useful inasmuch as it contains drugs listed by both generic and trade names and generally contains dosage forms as well.
