    Review:

    2007 BRITISH MEDICAL ASSOCIATION MEDICAL BOOK AWARDS PUBLIC HEALTH CATEGORY Commended -- Poisoning and Drug Overdose 5e, Olson 'As a practical bedside manual of toxicology, this book works well. It is easily carried around and easy to use. The book itself is well laid out, accurate and up-to-date. My main criticism is that this book adds little to what is normally available from other sources. There are other texts of similar size, price and quality in the same field; and larger more expensive texts covering the same areas as well as other areas. In general, I would expect this book to be used as a reference text in emergency departments. However, UK emergency departments have access to up-to-date information of this type online and it is usual to check the online version to be sure to be up-to-date. Overall though, at this price I would consider it a useful addition to an emergency department library.' BMA REVIEWER QUOTE 2007 BMA News Information 20070927
