From the reviews: "This is a dermatology textbook for general practitioners who need to be able to diagnose common skin disorders ! . The authors appear to have put a good deal of thought into the layout and organization of the book in order to provide enough detail to be complete ! enough to fit into a small, easy to carry book. ! It is easily accessible, well written, succinct, and would be a useful addition to the library of any general practitioner." (Kathleen E. Kramer, Doody's Review Service, September, 2010)
