"This all-inclusive textbook contains the most comprehensive, up-to-date and detailed information on any topic related to skin cancer....It could serve as the main resource for any physician for years to come."—Perry Robins, MD, President, Skin Cancer Foundation (from the foreword)

The book concludes with in-depth sections on skin cancer prevention—covering critical topics such as skin cancer vaccines and chemoprevention of skin cancer—in addition to the medicolegal and economic issues related to skin cancer.
