"The book would be useful as adjunct reading for those embarking on teaching for the first time. It provides a wealth of information on approaches to use that support learning, its assessment and evaluation, some of which are innovative and could be fun to use. It is well written...I especially like the way the bibliography is broken down into subject areas, enabling readers to spot texts supporting their special interests."

"...This book will allow teachers new to the field of healthcare education to understand the common educational concepts and techniques, to learn how to effectively assist learning, and to reflect upon and improve their own teaching practice. This book is however not intended to be a comprehensive teaching manual. It is rather, an easy-to-read guide which will allow the teacher [to] understand common educational concepts and apply these to their every day teaching practice."

"As Colleges of Pharmacy seem to be shifting more and more pharmacy education activities to practicing pharmacists, this book will be of some value to those that have limited experience in teaching. It contains tips, personal accounts, and exercises...This book can be of great value to practitioners as well as college faculty and is written by experienced authors."
