"..this is a really extensive and comprehensive book on the drug development process. ...There is very little overlap between chapters and all are written by experts in the field. Hundreds of useful references are included for those wanting to go further. ...Very good value...and essential reading for both the scientist and Ph.D. student. Definately one for the library to stock."
