I used this as my primary source for studying pharm, and it's absolutely indispensable for studying for the boards. Although I do wish they had those chapter summaries that were in the biochemistry book.
LIR Pharm seems to be one of those books that everyone uses in medical school. It's really not short or quick to read at over 500 pages. But the fact that the authors keep all of the chapters at about 10-15 pages makes each one a fairly easy and digestible read. As others have already said, the greatest strength of the book by far is the excellent illustrations. I think the book is worth buying for the illustrations alone, especially since they are in color in the third edition. Also, I really loved the little cartoon people that they use for the figures that show the side effects. However, I don't think this book is detailed enough for a medical school pharmacology class. (Well, at least it wasn't for mine!) What I found to be really helpful was to read the chapter in this book first, and then read the corresponding chapter in Katzung or Goodman and Gilman.

One thing about this book annoyed me a lot, and that was the huge number of typos that are present throughout. You would think that surely by the third edition, the editors could find them all and fix them. Most of the time, the typos were merely annoying, but there was one typo on page 237 that was outright wrong. It says that danaparoid is a mixture of the sulfates of heparin, dermatan, and chondroitin, but it should be HEPARAN, dermatan, and chondroitin. Danaparoid doesn't contain heparin!
I used this book many years ago to get through pharmacology. I found that reading it before reading the class notes and doing questions was best. It was a lot better than the overly detailed notes from class or the Lange book, that was filled with useless details.The main points (mechanism of action, side effects, indication, etc.) are clearly stated with illustrations to clarify and help with remembering. It is concise and geared to what you need to know for Boards and also in practice, whether you are a student or resident on the wards, or later on in practice. Now that I teach medical students, I am buying an updated version, since it still offers the best way to explain pharmacology in medical practice.
An excellent quick review. This book is stream lined, easy to comprehend and fairly good with the number of drugs covered. It should be coupled with a more comprehensive text. I would have had a much more difficult time with my Pharmacology class without it. There is not enough chemistry, but then again it is a review. Overall - well worth adding to your library.
I used this book to prepare for my Pharmacology exam in university,it's a great book, my pharmacology course based on this book so it was very helpful.Afcourse it's not enough,for a med.student who is looking for pharmokinetic's,that's why i bought 2 books in one time: Lippincott's "Pharmacology 3th" and Katzung "Clinical pharmacology".
great book. simple and easy to understand. good outline. maybe a little on the simple end
I really liked this book for my pharmacology course as a medical student. Pleasing charts and diagrams. Concise and well written. I would highly recommend.
