Review:

"This edition adds solid overviews of emerging topics in the field...which keep it at the cutting edge of receptor pharmacology...a valuable resource for students of pharmacology and all members of drug discovery and design teams. Rating: 4 Stars" --Doody's.com, Sep 2014

"...a major strength of the present monograph is the author’s long-standing commitment to the didactic promotion of the discipline of pharmacology as the primary, unifying discipline of drug discovery. This monograph remains the key reference work in pharmacology and receptor theory, providing an irreplaceable yet accessible reference source for all scientists involved in biomedical research as it pertains to drug discovery." --Drug Development Research, June 2014

"A wonderful contribution to the world of pharmacology that takes the reader from introductory information to advanced receptor theory.  This book will be useful to both students and seasoned researchers alike. Beautifully illustrated and clearly written, this book is a welcome addition to every library." --P Michael Conn, PhD, Senior Vice President for Research and Associate Provost, Professor of Internal Medicine, School of Medicine, Professor of Cell Biology and Biochemistry, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Lubbock, TX
