My preference overall in terms of derm texts is Habif, mostly due to organization, but this one comes in a close second. Lots of great pics and simple straightforward explanations (sometimes a little too simple). Also probably a great book for laypeople with some knowledge of medical terminology.

I have been using various iterations of Fitzpatrick throughout my 12 years of practice as a Family Nurse Practitioner. The organization, wealth of information, excellent photography (it really looks like what a provider sees in a person's skin!) all make it an invaluable reference. I am pleased to see the addition of more photography involving people of color, as upwards of 50% of the US population is now minority.

As it says, it is a really an atlas rather than a textbook. As an atlas so I think it is good but the clinical synopsis is not well written. One cannot really learn from the discussion given in the text. The etiology of each disease in not discussed and if it is then it is not clear and is not well explained. It is relatively inexpensive so this is also an advantage but other than this there is no advantage over other books with respect to to the explanation in the text.

As a medical student just entering clinic, I have found this book to the the perfect resource. Reccomended by a Dermatologist on faculty, it is easy to navigate, has tons of useful pictures and is small enough to carry to clinic in my backpack. I've already used it to make a diagnosis or two and know for sure that it has earned it's place on my bookshelf.

I actually like this edition better than the new version. It has a better lay out and is easier to follow the bullet points. I have one in each patient room so they people can see exactly what there rash is. Must have for anybody!

Quick and assured reference for everyday use in dermatology clinic. However, does not substitute Fitzpatrick's 2 vol. compendium if you're looking to broaden your knowledge in the area.
