Okay it is broken in to chapters about types of poisons. Plants, animals and chemical pills and house hold things. Useful but admittedly American in authorship so if you live elsewhere the world use it as a jumping off point and check.
For those who are writing yes it useful indeed it tells you at the back what the poisons look like and how they can be administered.
Nice set out and nicely written pithy and to the point. For fiction and story use if you are writing an essay or something more substantial just read it to get a point to start off.
Again I have to state do not go around poisoning things... good glossary and bibliography.
Every poisonous substance listed in great detail, readable prose, this is no medical journal.
If you are fascinated by this kind of thing, then buy this book- It's not for scholars of this subject.
It's for us who read Agatha Christie!

I am writing a mystery novel that includes snake venom and so this book was immensely helpful.
Thank you so much,
