"The book is both a learning tool and reference material. It is an easy and understandable guide to prehospital pharmacology, typically one of the most challenging components of paramedic education. The book is geared toward both new EMS professionals as well as those who are currently practicing. The book shines in its problem-oriented structure as well as its drug profile content."

While the book is geared toward paramedics, it is appropriate for EMTs looking to advance their knowledge of pharmacology. The book meets the needs of a wide audience from students to experienced professionals. It is an excellent reference resource; however, it is in need of updating. The author brings his knowledge of EMS as a prior paramedic as well as his pharmacology knowledge as a physician and trauma surgeon.
