On Being a Pharmacist: True Stories by Pharmacists focuses on the humanistic side of pharmacy practice. In this compilation of stories, essays, and vignettes, pharmacists present recollections of encounters with patients, colleagues, pharmacy teachers, and other health professionals that had a great effect on their life or practice, and they share their humorous experiences in pharmacy practice.

Pharmacists, student pharmacists, and their families will enjoy and relate to these personal reflections. The contributed stories will provide valuable insight into the joyous, and sometimes painful, aspects of pharmacy practice.
