<p>A unique blend of an informal writing style that makes information easy to absorb, along with a thorough and highly detailed literature review through 2005</p><p>Only single-authored text available to clinicians seeking data-based information</p><p>All chapters follow the same organizational format</p>
<P>The original book, first published in 1979, used an approach to substance abuse that has proven to be very successful over the years. The core of the current text continues to be placing drugs into categories based on their most usual effects, and then demonstrating the marked similarities among drugs of a class regarding the patterns of problems likely to be seen. The relatively informal style, strong emphasis on clinical issues, and the use of recent references help the reader learn more about the topics. </P>
