". . . [I]s it worth buying this book? . . . Yes because it encapsulates much of the modern analytical approaches to TDM and Toxicology which would be difficult to acquire otherwise. All chapters are well written, well referenced . . ."
Bulletin of the International Association of Forensic Toxicologists
". . . the book is a valuable resource as a relatively concise review of the subject matter. It should be of great interest to those involved in any aspect of drug analysis and to those professionals who interpret information provided by such analysis."
