From the previous edition:
"This text is written in an orderly progression, beginning with an introduction to pharmacokinetics and pharmacology…
…the writing style is consistent and the chapters follow similar layouts.
…illustrations do serve to clarify particular concepts.
…numerous tables serve to encapsulate the text are very useful for quick reference.
…as the name states, this would be appropriate for a course in pharmacology, would meet BOC guidelines for this competency, and is complete enough to be the sole text for such a course.
…this text could serve as a reference for the athletic training room and would be very helpful in establishing procedures for the storage and dispensing of medications.
…a well written reasonably priced text.
…as drugs come to the forefront in athletics and athletic trainees deal with an ever-widening cross-section of the population, the information contained in this text will be invaluable to all athletic trainers."
— John Miller, PhD, ATC, Journal of Athletic Training
"One of the strengths of this text is the depth and breadth. The organization of the text is great. I really like the flow charts that give the reader both a heads up and a review…the other huge advantage...is the charts, graphs, and tables. In many cases the tables are directly linked to the Athletic Training Educational Competencies which is another BONUS of the text."
— Elizabeth Swann, PhD, ATC, Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL
"…chapters are easy to follow and do not require the reader to have an extensive biochemistry background. Although the book is written for athletic trainers, students and clinicians from other sports medicine disciplines would benefit from the information."
— Janice K. Loudon, PT, PhD, SCS, Physical Therapy
"Any athletic trainer working with elite athletes will benefit from the information in this textbook and likely rely on it as a strong resource for making both treatment and physician consultation decisions. It provides a tremendous amount of material in a manner that helps readers retain the information and apply the science to real-life decisions. It is well organized and the addition of three new topic areas keeps it current and useful."
— Jason S. McVeigh, MS, PT, ATC, LAT, University of Tennessee at Knoxville, Doody's Enterprises, Inc.
