Essential booklists (8)
As far as I can consider, my suggestion namely that Goodman-Gilman's
Pharmacology should be inserted into the essential book-list, caused a
pretty nice "storm".
Working more than six years in so-called "developing countries"
(Uganda: Makerere University, Kampala, - Ethiopia: Addis Ababa Univer-
sity) I maintain my opinion, that Goodman-Gilman should be on the list
because I know it from my experiences that the university students as
well, as the freshly graduated young colleagues are willing to pay for
a really good textbook even if the price is high. (No doubt it is, even
for us here in Eastern-Europe!) But on the other hand: quality first.
I have another suggestion too: WHO has published (Action Programme on
Essential Drugs) a good and cheap book which deals with a certain part
of pharmacology: "Guide to Good Prescribing". It is a practical manual
which can be used for self-study or as part of a formal training.
One more request:
Where can I get a copy of the mentioned Nepalese pharmacology book?
Thanks in advance.
