Review quote

"The third edition of this book, useful to seasoned medicinal chemists as well as to chemists entering the academic or industrial laboratories, provides a hands-on overview of the drug discovery process. This edition differs from the previous two editions by having been updated to reflect developments in the past 5 years, and it includes 11 new chapters.I found this book to be unique, well organized, and overall a useful addition to the medicinal chemistry literature. Having favorably reviewed the first edition, I still highly recommend this third edition to all chemists who are involved in the drug discovery process."- John L. Neumeyer, Harvard Medical School, in JOURNAL OF MEDICINAL CHEMISTRY from the American Chemical Society
