Remington: The Science And Practice Of Pharmacy !FULL!
Reviewer: David E Koren, PharmD, BCPS, AAHIVP (Temple University Health System)Description: This 23rd edition of "The Remington," as the book is colloquially known, is a premier reference and textbook in the fields of pharmacy and pharmaceutics. This edition builds on information from the 22nd edition published in 2012. The science and practice of pharmacy is an extraordinarily broad topic; however, the title builds on topics ranging from medicinal chemistry and pharmaceutics, to basic pharmaceutical practice concepts, to measured pharmaceutical outcomes and associated governing policy.Purpose: The book's purpose is to serve as a comprehensive text/reference book for the science and practice of pharmacy. While the title is not meant to be a clinical compendium of medicine, it is a key source of information for the science and application of pharmacy and pharmaceutical concepts. The title remains to be among the key educational references in the field and is both well respected and renowned for its authority on its involved topics.Audience: "The Remington" is primarily written for learners of the field given its broad aims and scope, but it also serves as a base reference for those in the field learning further (or refreshing) base concepts. The title achieves its objective as a complete and comprehensive base reference on the involved topics.Features: The greatest strengths of "the Remington" are in its coverage of pharmaceutics and pharmaceutical application (e.g., dosage forms). Additional sections of note include pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic concepts and a broad overview of topics crossing pharmacy practice and pharmaceutical outcomes. The title is not meant to be a complete reference of clinical pharmacology but is meant to be used alongside such references.Assessment: In the foreword, the editor-in-chief recognizes the breadth of topics that the title seeks to address and notes that this title, in its entirety, may not be needed by all learners and practitioners. That being said, there is no better reference than this title as a base reference/learning resource for pharmaceutics/pharmaceutical applications with further information on which to build for clinical application and knowledge.
