    A Primer of Drug Action is a concise, nontechnical guide to the disposition, actions, uses, and side effects of psychoactive drugs in man. In short, this is pharmacology for the layman and is an excellent text for on-the-job training for analysts in training in forensic toxicology and criminalistics laboratories who have no formal training in pharmacology. The section on drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination is exceptionally well illustrated and written. Dr. Julien covers sedatives, tranquilizers, opiates, stimulants, alcohol, and psychedelic drugs, among others.
