"Despite the fact that this book is aimed at neophytes in dermatology, the authors have a knack for explaining concepts in a way that nails the etiology and descriptions perfectly, which is often not the case in encyclopedic or other comparable competitors. The clarity of the writing manages to nail the message precisely and meaningfully in just one or two sentences. I am keeping it on my shelf and I have given a copy to my RN, who loves it."
