From the Back Cover:

Pharmacokinetics Made Easy presents the principles of pharmacokinetics in a simple, focused and comprehensive manner which is accessible to medical practitioners, health professionals and students. A physiological approach is taken, allowing a direct application of the concepts to practical issues in drug therapy. Features include: self-assessment questions for each chapter to test comprehension of concepts; a glossary of the symbols used and of important pharmacokinetic relationships; use of equations to describe the physiological factors underlying important pharmacokinetic processes; clear diagrams to enhance understanding. Initially published as a series of articles in the Australian Prescriber, Pharmacokinetics Made Easy was written to address a lack of conceptually accessible material. Concentrating on the concepts important for an informed and rational approach to drug dosing and therapy, Pharmacokinetics Made Easy is a key, practical reference.
