From the reviews:
"The purpose is to provide a framework for diagnosing and managing complex immunological diseases of the skin. ... The audience is dermatologists, and third year dermatology residents would find this book useful. ... This is a useful reference for clinicians. I would recommend it to any dermatologist who sees patients. ... This book will teach readers how to think, and the test format provides a more active way to learn the material."
