From a reviewof the previousedition:
'For allthe pharmacy students out there part of yourpharmacy degree will be to studyformulation design and pharmaceutics. This is theholy grail of pharmaceutical technology books. The text readswell and introduces difficult concepts in a more easy-to-understandway, it isdefinitely worth the money tohelp you get through themodule, if you're doing a research project in pharmaceutical design then thiswould also be an excellent buy.Thisis essential for passing examsand developing professional competence.'
This is the best known text on pharmaceutics.Its strength lies mainly in being a complete course in one book. Reviewersconsistently praise its comprehensiveness and its extremelyhigh quality-quality content. Pharmaceutics is one of themost diverse subject areas in pharmaceutical science and an understandingof it isvital for all pharmacists and scientists involved in converting drugs to medicines that can be safely delivered to a patient. Theeditorial and author team deliver a tour de force of accessibility,coverage and currency in this new edition ofa world-class textbook.
