5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Dermatology Reference! Feb. 15 2001
As a practicing optometrist, I continually see lesions of all types on peoples faces, and have always wanted an affordable dermatology reference to help me in assessing the risk associated with these lesions. I must say this text is everything I wanted, and then some. The text provides excellent, detailed diagnostic/background information to accompany the wonderful full color pictures, and is organized according to the type of lesion and underlying etiology. At 1,040 pages, it appears to cover the most important and common skin conditions seen. I expect it to become an often used reference in my optometry practice. This text will definitely help me decide when to refer a patient for further evaluation. I honestly wonder how such a great reference can be produced at this price, as most of my other texts are much more expensive. If you are looking for this type of text, I don't think you can lose with this one. The text I have reviewed is the fourth edition, copyright 2001.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great overview of Clinical Dermatology Jan. 29 2003
I enjoyed reading this book as a layperson, not having gone to medical school. I have a number of minor skin problems and this book allowed me to differentiate the insignificant ones from the ones I need to pay attention to. I think that this book should be in every household, because a person or parent should know what skin affliction(s) they have and how serious they are before they rush off to the doctor. One thing that should have been elaborated on more is the sub-section on The Nails as Clues to Multiorgan Disease. There are only a few pages of examples of this, yet there are dozens of correlations between abnormal fingernails and systemic disease. The book only gives blantant and graphic examples of serious nail problems and then gives the possible associated underlying disease. It should be expanded to include more "soft sign" nail problems to help doctors make educated guesses about what tests to run.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out Damned Spot! May 6 2002
Was it, perhaps, the abundant clear color photos? Was it, by chance, the in-depth and easy to understand text? Or could it have been the complete indexing of every skin disease known to mankind, from Acne to Zoster sine zoster, that compelled me to snatch this wonderful red book from the shelf and declare, "Hey, this is one super-cool book!"
If I were a dermatologist or a general practitioner, I'd want this atlas in my reference library. Ah...but alas, I'm but a simple lawyer trying to find out how to get rid of a case of... Dare I say more? Out damned spot! Out!
Here's how I see it. If I, as layperson, might think this atlas worthy of your attention...then it must be! Cammy Diaz

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL-RESEARCHED, WELL-DOCUMENTED Jan. 27 2003
Shinning like a king's armour, the colours and synopses of this atlas made a thorough analysis of skin diseases.
Any medical student or practioner who needs a dermatological companion would find a reliable one in this atlas. The uncountable pictures, which featured in this new edition are both illustrative and descriptive. Everything about the book indicates sound research and documentation, (on the part of its authors). It is a superlative tool for both doctors and students: the type of book many people would like to keep as CD-ROMs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Helpful Oct. 14 2001
Concise and yet detailed enough to give full explanations on the major skin diagnoses. Includes medications w/ its appropriate application and dispensable information, which I found very useful. The book also provides some pathology and has very clear photos. What i found most helpful was the color-coded mapping of lesions' distributions. This is a fabulous bible for anyone in the medical field or anyone who is interested in skin diseases.
