Pharmaceutical Biotechnology - second edition

edited by Michael J. Groves
CRC Press
Publication date: 


This is an excellent reference book that emphasizes the topics important for manufacturing; it covers exactly the right topics. It is written for researchers in the field, so the level is inappropriately challenging for a lower division college student. The multiple authors means that it also suffers from an uneven writing style. Also, it's very expensive. Jim uses it extensively as a reference to prepare lectures.
