    Great book which entirely lives up to the title. This book makes learning antibiotics a breeze. Antibiotics are some of the hardest drugs to learn, at least they were for me and I read through this book and felt much more confident going into my pharmacology exam. This book was only recommended for my course and I am glad I bought it and studied it. Easy to read and understand and it wasn’t too terribly lengthy. The book is organized based upon classes of antibiotics and then goes into details on the specifics and what each is used to treat. It breaks the treatment into Great for, okay for and not good for so that you can sort of organize them in your head. Overall, great read and I feel that this book is a must have for any pharmacy class that requires and in depth knowledge of antibiotics.

    As you know, there can be down time on the wards. Book fits easily into white coat pocket. Answers the questions you want to know: differences between drugs within classes; common and important adverse reactions; when to use one antibiotic over another.

    Very happy with this book. Thank you Gallagher.
