"This book is now an established classic in the field of toxicology. In the time between the fifth and sixth edition, there have been significant advances in research that warrant this edition. When it comes to completeness, there really is no comparable book on the market. " (Doody's 2001-01-01)
The text presents concepts in logical progression from general principles to specific topics. In addition to new chapters and interior design, the 6th edition includes recent advances in molecular biology and pharmacogenetics and thoroughly revamped clinical chapters.See all Product Description

The good thing about this book is that I strongly suspect you can understand it with any background whatsoever, provided you can read. The downside is that if you have a few loosely connected courses under your belt - such as chemistry, biology, biochemistry, and so on - reading this book will yield very little useful information. Meaning it is a gigantic waste of time, for the most part.
Casarett and Doull, PLEASE, recall Cicero`s words: "Brevity is the best recommendation of speech, whether in a senator or an orator."
