E-mail: ude. In the field of pharmacoeconomics, Dr. Rascati has accumulated years of experience in both teaching and research at a US pharmacy school. Her rich experiences were heavily incorporated into the contents and organization of the book, which makes it an excellent textbook for pharmacy education.

So far, the book has generated 2 positive book reviews. One review, written by a journal editor, describes the book contents in detail by chapters. With 8 chapters, the first part focuses on 4 pharmacoeconomic methods — cost-minimization analysis, cost-effective analysis, cost-utility analysis, and cost-benefit analysis.

In addition, the third chapter outlines the criteria to critique a pharmacoeconomic research article. These criteria not only aid pharmacy students in the literature search, but also sharpen their critical thinking abilities.

With 6 chapters, the second part discusses more advanced topics related to decision making such as Markov modeling and the use of retrospective databases. Furthermore, the twelfth chapter links pharmacy services with pharmacoeconomic, providing a framework for US doctor of pharmacy PharmD students to assess costs and benefits of medication therapy management MTM. Overall, the scope and depth of the book efficiently meets the guidelines related to pharmacoeconomics by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education ACPE.

The book has 3 merits. First, practical examples are embedded within most chapters, which can help pharmacy students better learn relevant topics. Second, each chapter encompasses well-designed exercises, up-to-date references, and suggested readings. The exercises are tools for self-assessment, and the references and readings are nourishment for further learning.

Third, as pointed out earlier, the third and twelfth chapters present insights into evaluating research articles and performing pharmacy services, areas usually absent in pharmacoeconomics texts. In summary, Essentials of Pharmacoeconomics is a high-quality, intellectual contribution to the pedagogy of pharmacoeconomics in pharmacy.

As a pharmacy educator, after reading the book, I deeply appreciate the time and effort Dr. Rascati spent on both teaching and research in pharmacoeconomics. No doubt it was her experience from those endeavors that resulted in this book. I highly recommend the book to be used as a textbook in pharmacoeconomics courses at US pharmacy schools.
