Description for Bookstore
The most universally respected and read medical textbook in all of pharmacology. Goodman and Gilman's represents the pinnacle of authority and accuracy in describing the actions and uses of therapeutic agents in relation to physiology and pathophysiology. It is, very much, the "Harrison's of pharmacology."About the Book Goodman and Gilman's Pharmacological Basis of Therapeuticshas sold more than 1,000,000 copies since the first edition published in 1942. Virtually every physician and pharmacologist and pharmacist in the US, and many throughout the world, has at some point relied upon G&G to present the most authoritative, accurate, and useful coverage the basic and clinical aspects of chemical therapeutics. The book is a great strategic fit with our domestic and global product lines in virtually all categories and specialties, and its enormous credibility carries over to the benefit our entire publishing program.Used equally in its life as a textbook and as a reference book, in recent editions G&G has settled into its role as the undisputed heavyweight of pharmacology reference information, purchased by medical and scientific libraries, pharmacologists, toxicologists, clinicians, and departmental libraries within hospitals and medical schools.The 11th edition published in August, 2005. In that time it has sold more than 55,000 units, the majority of those being sold outside the US. The streamlined page count, modernized text design, and updated coverage have been well received. The most important innovation, and one that will continue to be very relevant to future editions, has been the development and launch of Goodman and Gilman On Line.G&G is in many ways the perfect medical book to be converted to and driven by the On Line format, given the breadth and depth of new information in pharmacology and drug therapy, and given the contributions multimedia materials can make to the subject of clinical pharmacology. In addition, the pairing of G&G with a detailed therapeutics/dosing database on AccessMedicine is an important and valuable feature.The 12th edition of G&G will continue to be under the command of Laurence Brunton, PhD, and Keith Parker, MD PhD. We have identified several new and revised features and priorities for the new edition:Key Selling Features Brand new:for the first time ever, G&G will feature a full-color format with greatly improved text design to aid reader navigation and great new illustrations showing more detail than ever before possible in the book. The illustrations will be a major feature of the on line version of G&G, as well. Brand new:the 12th edition features a DVD image bank for the first time, allowing users to seamlessly employ graphics from the book in lectures and presentations. Brand new:The DVD also includes the excellent pedagogical animations from Goodman and Gilman On Line. These animations brilliantly display complex pharmacological concepts in a clear manner that enhances understanding. Expanded:The 12th edition will feature more illustrations than ever before, with approximately 200 additional figures showing key principles and actions of specific pathways and therapeutic agents. Modernized and revamped:G&G 12 will feature a brand new text design with the many different elements and parts of a chapters receiving a unique and consistent design for ease of reference and navigation. Reorganized:the classic Goodman and Gilman structure will be retained, but with notable improvements in the organization of specific sections. Cardiovascular and renal therapeutics will now be covered in different sections. Cancer therapeutics, traditionally one huge chapter in G&G, will be broken out into multiple chapters, with a particular emphasis on the new targeted anti-tumor therapies. The lengthy section on the pharmacology of anti-microbials will be streamlined. Expanded:the
