What a thorough and informative book! I have had many small pre-cancerous lesions and basal cell carcinomas (the legacy of growing up fair-skinned in California), so I am extra vigilant  with regard to any changes or "funny spots'" on my skin. I thought that I was well informed about melanoma, but there were many aspects that I was unaware of, and how glad I am to have read this book. This is an excellent book for anyone, but especially for those with a history like mine, or who might have actually been diagnosed witih melanoma. The personal stories are reassuring and informative, and all the current options for treatment are outlined and discussed.  (This is a new edition of a previous book, written to include all of the up-to-date research and protocols.) This is a must-have and a must-read for anyone with skin issues or with a diagnosis of melanoma. f
