Any student wanting a concise and accurate overview of pharmacology could do no better than start with this book.Some drugs act as false substrates or inhibitors for certain transport systems (bottom right) or enzymes (bottom left). It′s a well–rounded book with good explanations of how drugs produce their effects and an outline of their uses.

Each section contains a clear illustration depicting the major drugs and their interactions within a particular body system and a concise account of the topic. Covering a wide range of topics, ideal as introductory texts for teaching, learning and revision, and are useful throughout university and beyond.As more of a visual memory gal, the clear comprehensive diagrams often appear to me through the haze that descends during ward rounds and exams when all seems lost. Each subject is covered over two-pages, with visuals and information on one page and drugs on the other. I shan't waste space here by copying the contents list as you can view that and more, for yourself, by using the excellent 'Look inside' feature.

This well illustrated volume, in the "At a Glance" series, is suitable for undergraduate medical and pharmacology students seeking a text for revision.

The market-leading at a Glance series is popular among healthcare students, and newly qualified practitioners for its concise, simple approach and excellent illustrations. They are always professionally written, extremely informative and have a good mix of text and imagery. However, most drugs produce their effects by acting on specific protein molecules, usually located in the cell membrane.
