I just read this new edition from cover-to-cover in preparation for the dermatology boards and I am very impressed! The new edition is updated not only in therapeutics but also in the latest in genetic defects underlying the genodermatoses that the boards love so much. It concisely covers clinical dermatology in a very readable format. One thing it lacks is an organized chapter on therapeutics.

This edition was long overdue. The previous edition was excellent, and this one adds alot to it. Many updated therapies...several new chapters...a slightly different format...excellent new edition. The only criticism I would have is that there are still no color pictures in it. I would recommend this for all dermatology libraries and would consider it a must for all dermatology residents.

A Good Book to Learn General Dermatology Sept. 27 2004
By Hassan Galadari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I will go ahead and be completely candid and truthful with my review on this book. This I know will go very unfavorable with everyone out there and the universal notion that this is the greatest book to ever come out on Dermatology. I'll be the leper of that group.

The book, which covers the major aspects of most if not every dermatological disease is very thorough in scope though extremely and poorly organized. This is the downfall of this book which for completion purposes just scans over the major point in an extremely wide part of medicine, Dermatology. You have the book mention something in passing and then for no reason in a later section would go back to what it covered with more details. I have no idea why that happens a lot in this book. I admit there are excellent chapters out there, but their poor organization and lack of reasonable trend just puts the book off. The book may have the right wording and the ease in language, but simply fails to put things together in a coherent way. Another major problem is that the book's pictures are B&W. In a time where color images are ubiquituous, this is not acceptable. A lot of people I know have mentioned these negative features, though they still like the book because it's the only book out there that they can carry around and still look through between clinics or grand rounds.

I believe that for residents out there, that books like Ftizpatrick, the critically-acclaimed Bolognia and the bible Rook should be required reading for all residents to build the basis of sound, strong and a lasting base for their Dermatology education. Andrew's could be used for a fast quick reference, but not the one that should be counted on making life and death decisions in dermatological care. Andrew's is good, but not that great and certainly not even closest to being the best.

The most overrated book in dermatology today - from a dermatology resident Feb. 25 2010
By D. Friedmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Cover to cover, this book has more misspelled words, punctuation errors, repetitive sentences, tangential thoughts within paragraphs, and overall lack of flow than ANY OTHER TEXTBOOK I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS (in any course or subject matter whatsoever). The authors of this book should be ashamed of themselves for such a disgusting display of an "asleep at the wheel" attitude towards making sure the text is actually presentable; instead of just making sure an ungodly amount of minutia is crammed into 900 nearly-intolerable pages. Sure, it may be known as the "cliffs notes" of dermatology and have all the information you need, but I am glad that few people outside of dermatology will ever read a single page from this text because it would be an embarrassment to us all.
