A complete textbook of dermatologic science and practice focusing on the care of patients with moderately to heavily pigmented skin
“Excellent color clinical photographs on high quality glossy white paper make this book a pleasure to peruse….I would recommend this book to anyone caring for a multiracial mix of patients. It also serves as a good standalone general dermatology textbook. It is definitely one of the superior books currently available covering dermatology issues in patients of color. 3 Stars.”–Doody’s Review Service
