The text now bears the name of its original author, Howard Ansel. In the academia field of pharmaceutics, the text has always been known as just Ansel's. The text now entitled Ansel's Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms and Drug Delivery Systems is a fitting tribute to the author who pioneered this educational work over 30 years ago.

Another change is that the first author is now Dr. Loyd Allen who, in conjunction with Dr. Ansel and Dr. Popovich, has rewritten several sections of the eighth edition while expanding the text with the introduction of case studies related to manufacturing pharmaceutics topics and concepts as well as clinical patient care. The text is now divided into 8 sections or divisions, with the inclusion of Physical Pharmacy Capsules and the Pharmaceutical and Clinical Cases with the SOAP note emphasis in sections where relevant.

The information presented in the text is in a logical sequential manner for learning and teaching pharmaceutical dosage forms. A significant addition to this text is the case study section with the SOAP note format. This addition lends itself to providing the student relevancy of the subject matter to the practice of pharmacy. There has been some rearrangement in material and updated information on good compounding practices, biologicals, and biotechnology products. Tables that include drug products in each dosage form section have been updated and enhanced.

The authors have also included a glossary of pharmaceutical terms in the appendix section. As a student nearly 30 years ago, one of our required texts in pharmaceutics was Ansel's 2nd edition. Now as a faculty member teaching pharmaceutics, Ansel's is still our required textbook.

As I reviewed the eighth edition of this text, I was extremely pleased to see the attention given to detail in the updating of tables and pictures, as well as the addition of the newest drugs and novel dosage forms. The case study and SOAP note format provides a more clinical view of dosage forms, while the Physical Pharmacy Capsules provide theory and concepts to be discussed and explained in an extremely organized manner.

Ansel's continues to sequence the information in the text in a manner that is conducive for teaching and learning the subject matter. In conclusion, Ansel's has been and continues to be the required text of choice for teaching introductory dosage forms in any pharmacy curriculum.
