This is the standard issue book for Derm residents and clinic reference. This book maintains its format of stream of consciousness and is excellent for those who already have a foundation in Dermatology. This should not be your first derm textbook (buy big Fitz or Bolognia is that is what you need). Was lucky enough to come by an early copy and read it through for the inservice. I had hoped for corrections to some things in the last edition but the updates are not very thorough and some seemed like add on paragraphs (although I did not compare page to page with my old one). One that comes to mind is the reference to Ontak as its original numerical designation. Also noticed that the melanoma staging does not include mitotic rate for thin melanomas, which is now standard of care. Additional figures and surgery chapter are nice. The online access is nice for those who already have Bolognia and are used to expertconsult.com but it is by no means a substitute for having the actual book. A pdf or iPad version would be great.

This used to be a decent textbook. No more. Clinical emphasis but not really good. As for basic science and pathogenesis, forget it. It needs a better job by the editors, or new editors. You will not pass your exams by relying on this edition.

Bologna is full of typographical errors
Fitzpatrick has turned into a comic book
Rook is like war and peace
Andrews packs into one volume anything truly relevant. For my primary textbook, it is exactly the right amount of detail. Any more, and it would lose me.
Each new edition really does have numerous updates and clarifications.

I bought it as a gift for my fellow, who is enjoying it thoroughly. It is a great way to get a readable, comprehensive overview of dermatology either before or during residency.

I plan to read this book cover-to-cover multiple times. Obviously not anywhere near as exhaustive as Bolognia, but more portable and it gets the important knowledge across.

I was under the impression this was coming to me as a hard cover. However it is a paperback which is a bit inconvenient. Timely delivery, however.

My main goto text when I have a question, onto which Bolognia fills in the gaps for added important extension of understanding and developments. This is the bare minimum information a Dermatology resident needs to assimilate, and put into practice (in my opinion). The on line image bank is filled with more images, and I recommend taking advantage of this in your training and study.

Strengths: compact, comprehensive, online access with many more excellent pictures, enjoyable to read.

Weaknesses: lacks in basic science detail, Dermatopathology detail, and Surgical Dermatology detail required of a senior Dermatology resident (but there are other tools for these areas).

Sincerely highly recommend!!!

Very well written for first years or those interested in a little more than Habif. Pictures are great. Can use this or Bolognia for first year.
