The general unattractiveness of the layout is compounded by the 3-column design, which means that practically every word longer than 10 letters (i.e. most of derm nomenclature) is hyphenated at least once (often twice). Not the way forward for residents and practicioners alike, methinks. Figure quality is definitely below the Bolognia standard and after reviewing several chapters it is obvious that a lot of the material is duplicated throughout both volumes (amazingly, the same picture that looks fine in volume I will be off-color in volume II and vice versa, which is quite annoying in a field like dermatology, which relies heavily on visual clues).
If this is the future of textbooks, then I hope I will be able to get on without using any. In the meantime, I shall return my copy of Fitz and go with the new edition of Bolognia.
1. originally publisher just sent volume 1 (not through amazon)
2. documentation online and even the back cover of the book claims it includes e-edition with 'ability to annotate text' and use pictures for presentations. THIS IS NOT TRUE! It does include a download for one copy of the text to adobe digital edition... but you CAN NOT annotate the text or copy the pictures. I contacted the publisher and they say this is only the case if you purchase the additional online yearly subscription (this is CLEARLY NOT as advertised).
3. You CAN NOT use the e-edition on a handheld of any kind- as is CLEARLY pictured on the website. I contacted the publisher several weeks ago and all they said is that it was an error and they will remove it from their website... it is still there.
If you ask me they tried too hard to get this book out on time and the result is an edition that has sloppy errors even on the back hard cover of the text. When it comes to content..it seems OK. Not clearly any better than previous editions. Just in color. Many chapter are just so, so in quality. Very, very annoying that citations are online.... I have a feeling as more people purchase this book there will be more people unhappy with it and their 'e-edition' and just return it and go with Bolognia.
Compared to others editions it has more comparative tables so is easier to make diferences between diseases that are alike, also brings new algorithms that makes easier to understand the evolution and what do you spect to find.
the chapter of embiogenesis and the part of inmunology in some chapters are also illustrated (the last one does not bring those illustrations.
Its true, it cames in three collums, but the letter is big enough for read it, also i prefer that that three o 4 volumes.
in comparison of the bologna, this one brings more diseases.

Yes, the book is lengthy, as any good medical book. If you really want to learn derm and understand the diseases, stick to traditional books like this...Published on November 20, 2010 by :)
