This newest addition to the Companion Handbook Series is perfect for the toxicologist or pharmacy student who requires a brief introduction to the fundamental principles of toxicology but does not have immediate access to the textbook, nor the time for consultation. Fully page referenced to the classic text in the field, concepts are organized and presented in a logical progression from general principles to specific topics such as organ system toxicology, specific agent toxicology, and environmental toxicology. Where possible the information is summarized in tables or presented in outline format.

"New figures and more focused highlights through the use of color makes this an exciting and almost fun-to-read text. "Once again this tome plowed new ground and sown it with authoritative, comprehensive, and well written compilation of what toxicology's all about and how it affects our world and its inhabitants." (Veterinary Human Toxicology 2002-02-01)
"This book is now an established classic in the field of toxicology. In the time between the fifth and sixth edition, there have been significant advances in research that warrant this edition. When it comes to completeness, there really is no comparable book on the market. " (Doody's 2001-01-01)
