IN MY OPINION: As the mother of a child who suffers greatly from eczema, and who has read a ton on the subject, this book is not worth the paper it is written on. It throws out a few facts and figures about p and e, but probably not more than an actual sufferer would already know. In my opinion, the primary objective of this book was to promote a product called EXOREX, which I also believe (in my opinion) is not worth the cost of the container it is sold in.
Exorex is explained in the book to contain the essential fatty acids originally derived from bannana and the active ingredient 1% coal tar, and supposedly has a better skin penetrating formula and smell than regular coal tar.
Coal tar alone has been used for years for the treatment of these conditions, and some would question the safety of this type of use. I would question the safety of coal tar being more deeply absorbed by the body in this supposed new formulation. Also, 1% coal tar can be obtained in its own form a heck of a lot cheaper, and without the expense of buying this book that plays on the desperation of the poor folk who suffer from these conditions.
Finally, eczema and psoraisis, while both affecting the skin, are two completely separate and distinct conditions, and don't really seem to me to need to be discussed in one book.
For eczema, I would recommend a book by Dr. Atherton called, Eczema in Childhood - The Facts...good for children and adults alike.

Drs Holick and Rendon provide a must read for anyone with this aliment. Dr Rendon's plethora of knowledge on this subject is refreshing.
