Summary

"TAKE AS DIRECTED-- this was typed onto labels of medicine where the doctor had not specified directions on the prescription. Peter Coady has chosen this as the title of a book about two generations of pharmacists in a small suburban pharmacy in Caringbah. As such, it is a potted history of both pharmacy and the Sutherland Shire from the 1940s into the new century. The book deals with the changes which have occurred in the profession over the years, as well as a light hearted look at the everyday occurrences in practice. The final chapters recount the author's battle with a life threatening disease, and hopefully can give some comfort to those facing similar challenges."-- Cover.
