A dictionary like this was long needed, particularly because the meaning of most terms used in pharmacology (and a lot of other areas of medicine) has evolved and experienced sufficient mutation to cause misunderstanding....This is a magnificent book. Let us not say that it should be on every bookshelf; it should be so intensively used by every scientist and writer in this field that it never has time to on the bookshelf at all.
Prof. Graham Dukes, The International Journal of Risk and Safety
The book has a wide scope, encompassing terms in basic pharmacology and toxicology, various aspects of clinical pharmacology and drug use, some statistics and law, and a few other words thrown in for good measure (chaos, euphemism, and jargon, to pick a few at anything but random). Dip into it stochastically (q.v.) just before a tutorial and you will find some topic or other to stimulate discussion.
