Reviewer: Patricia Wong, MD(Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This all-time favorite of mine continues to improve with each new edition. It is devoted to clinical practicality — diagnosis and management of various skin diseases. The 11th edition has more color photographs than its predecessor and the information is current, concise, and well organized.
Purpose: It is intended to be a useful and accessible reference for busy dermatologists who wish to look up information quickly and an invaluable resource for budding dermatologists in training.
Audience: The audience is dermatologists and dermatology residents.
Features: The clinical information on diagnosis and management is this book's greatest asset. The authors generously share their wealth of practical knowledge. Many of the tips provided to lead one to make the correct diagnosis will not be found in other books. The lack of repetition and the effort to avoid overwhelming readers with too much minutiae on research findings are great features. This is a most practical and valuable book for clinical dermatologists, regardless of level of training.
Assessment: This is a great reference for dermatologic trainees and seasoned dermatologists alike. The clinical descriptions of skin disorders are well detailed and include tips on how to differentiate similar appearing entities. It continues to be in my top ten picks for my dermatology library. I urge all dermatologists to own it.
