Pharmacology and fun have never been joined in the same sentence--until now! Uniquely designed to use a "focused" approach to learning pharmacology, the introductory chapters lay the groundwork for learning this topic by explaining the history of pharmacology, discussing the legal and ethical principles involved, illustrating drug administration techniques, reviewing math, and explaining drug calculations.

The chapters open with a concise review of anatomy and physiology to provide readers with a foundation from which to understand the pharmacologic principles actions, effects, and uses of the drugs that treat a body system or disorder.
