New Book Recommendation

I recently finished More Sex is Safer Sex: The Unconventional Wisdom of Economics by Steven Landsburg. Landsburg is an economics professor at the University of Rochester and once wrote a regular column for Slate (he may still but I can't find anything recent). Landsburg uses economic logic to come to some rather interesting conclusions about everything from the spread of AIDS to how to fix politics. It's a better read than Freakonomics, which I also found enjoyable.

Clinical pharmacology (testing of drugs on human beings) Neuropharmacology (analyzing drugs based effects on the nervous system) Chemotherapy (study and developing of drugs which are capable of destroying cancer cells, germs and viruses without affecting the healthy cells) Toxicologists (study of poisonous drugs, chemicals and even air pollutants for their harmful effects) Once the specialization in these fields is done, pharmacologists move on to become experts in these fields. Pharmacologists in the teaching and research fields move to become heads of departments and research teams. Does The Public Sector Suffer From Paying Large Salaries Housekeeping Jobs
