We are extremely disappointed in the editor and publisher of this book. Sales of the most recent editions are being limited to police and “professional organizations” only. The book contains primarily charts of identification information for professionally produced pharmaceutical tablets and their imprints. Intentionally restricting access to to this type of information for widely available substances will do far more harm than good.

The sales restrictions on this book forced us to look around at what else was available, what we found was the Ident-A-Drug Reference which is an equivalent alternative available to the public.

  1. This books seems to be for sale to the general public at copquest.com. however, i have not yet gone through the full process of ordering the book, so this may not be accurate.

  2. The Newest version of this text is available at most college book stores and is used as an OChem text. I came across it for the first time at the Denver campus of Univ. Of Colorado, in the Student Union I might add.. I was purchasing some totally un-related books when I saw customer in front of me purchasing the new edition.
