This book is a thriller, from start to finish - keeping you glued to its pages with clairvoyant descriptions of anatomy, physiology and pharmacotherapy or drug use in disease state management. Three cheers to DiPiro and colleagues for being ahead of their pharmacy curve with this text.

Actually it saves me everyday. I love DiPiro.

This book has been indispensable (believe me, I've TRIED) for the last years of pharmacy school, but drier prose one will never find!! I'm rating it for it's scientific merit and usefulness to a practicing clinician, not for how fun it is to read!

Bought as a reference textbook for pharmacy school, it's full of great reference material for many of our classes.

Again not a top choice but I've got a Pathophys test so I've got to read it otherwise the only other thing I would use this book for is a door stop. It easily weighs 10-15 lbs!!
