Reviews

“This well-organized book describes the pharmacology and effects on various organ systems of aspirin and NSAIDS, and guides clinical decision making regarding the use of these medications. … It is appropriate specifically for medical students interested in gastroenterology, but it can be used by those interested in other fields of medicine to better understand the significance of NSAIDs and aspirin. The author is very well versed in this area.” (Noah Settergren, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2017)
