"The reality of drug induced disease has certainly come to light with much effort and attention being placed on drug safety. With this encyclopedia, the practitioner is able to ascertain whether a patient's condition is iatrogenic/drug induced or idiopathic or, better yet, able to identify patients at risk for iatrogenic drug injury and develop strategies to prevent these events...As a pharmacy instructor and consultant in the area of drug induced disease, I am extremely impressed with the content and layout of this encyclopedia. It is one of the most complete yet user friendly publications on these disease states. It would be a worthwhile addition to medical, pharmacy, and other allied health school libraries.(4 Stars!)" --Doody's
