“Steve Newman has done a wonderful job pulling together key concepts and data without the duplication common in multi-author books, and in so-doing has simplified understanding of the ideas and innovations of the last 50 years up to the present. Respiratory Drug Delivery: Essential Theory & Practice should be of value to government regulators, academic researchers and anyone involved with the respiratory drug delivery industry – from technicians to the CEO.”
