Its being used in pharmacy schools as far away as India (not bad for a book originally intended for a pharm tech class in Pittsburgh). This book bucks the trend of other college textbooks by not just being affordable, but even making itself available for free download and modification. The fact that it is available as a free download means that you have the chance to decide for yourself if this 644 page book is right for you before making it a standard part of your curriculum. Plus, Parsons Printing Press is actively developing additional tools for instructors to further enhance the book.
