This update comes four years after the seventh edition and it retains much that has made this an authoritative textbook, adds 30 new chapters, and a "new to this edition" online link to color photographs....the breadth of Goldfrank's new edition makes it worth purchasing for anyone who frequently, or even occasionally, treats toxicologic cases, even for those who own earlier editions.
