Netter’s Illustrated Pharmacology is a vivid, uniquely effective visual presentation of the pharmacodynamic relationship between drugs and the human body. It offers a unique visual approach to learning the basic principles of pharmacology – providing the most authoritative and broadest possible coverage of both the basic science and the clinical applications of pharmacology in a manner that is both scientifically rigorous and enjoyable. Succinct, easy-to-understand presentations of introductory pharmacologic principles based on classic images by Frank Netter as well as dynamic new illustrations from other talented medical artists. Divided by specific organ systems, each chapter shows how drugs are used for specific disorders of that system. The authors include clear, concise notes under each image, highlighting the important elements of each principle.
This is the ultimate book for the visual learner. Even for those who initially learn best from simple succinct outlines of high yield facts, will find this book to be the best for the final integration of basic sciences into the art of patient care prior to board examinations or clinical studies. I would recommend this book for every healthcare professional who has some need for understanding how drugs work. -Doody's Book Review Service
