Journal of the American Board of Family Practice

The text reads easily and provides the basic knowledge required for most skin conditions encountered in family practice. The 159 photographs are clear, the 8 figures are drawn well, and the 24 tables are helpful....All in all, I enjoyed this book and do recommend it.
