"Doctors are well aware that when prescribing medicines they must ensure that their prescribing is appropriate and responsible and in the patient's best interests. This book - the Pocket Prescriber, now also accessible in PDA form - is valued by thousands among senior medical students and junior doctors who need ready access to essential information and guidance in a compact form."

"Pocket Prescriber also contains the most important reminder that doctors must not act beyond their knowledge or competence and should seek advice of senior colleagues whenever clinical circumstances require them to do so."

Professor Dame Carol Black, Past-President of the Royal College of Physicians

About the PDA version
"We are delighted that the Pocket Prescriber will also now be available in a portable electronic version. The new PDA version of the Pocket Prescriber is timely as increasing numbers of prescribers have access to hand-held devices suitable for use of electronic guides."

Tim Nicholson, Institute of Psychiatry, London (Author)

About the PDA version
"An easily updated PDA format is particular helpful for learning about prescribing, as clinical use of medicines is constantly evolving".

Donald Singer, Professor of Therapeutics at the University of Warwick (Author)
