3.0 out of 5 stars Probably the wrong textbook for dental pharmacology, 20 Dec. 2013
By 
This review is from: Rang & Dale's Pharmacology, 7e (Paperback)
I have the same problem as one of the reviewers below: as a dental student experiencing a fast-paced and may I say insufficiently detailed "crash course" in pharmacology, I find this book to be of limited relevance. It's certainly more in-depth than my lecture notes, but coverage of molecular mechanisms of action seems slightly patchy and there is (understandably) a lack of information on clinical applications. I often find myself having to refer to other texts for the background physiology and discussions of ADME. It does cover the basic principles of pharmacology in very great detail in the initial sections, however, which may be useful for anyone needing to review cell biology etc.

All in all, it is neither concise nor definitive. This is probably one of those books it'd be good to flick through in the library, but not the bible you sleep with in your bed.

Plus points though for the writing style - it's provided me with a fair number of laughs on bad days.
