Summary: a classic
A book can not be responsible for humanity development imposibilities.
If there are no cures for many disease, like there are though much more
therapies than in the past. One should remember that a few decades ago, ,
leprosy, and many others diseases were important mortality and morbity
causes, and the development of knowledge and dermatology dramatically
changed the natural history of theses diseases.
Many other became curable and many others are responsible to newer
therapies, with unquestionable quality of life improvement for many
people with skin diseases all over the world.
Rook is a classic. It is the most important reference dermatology has.
If one compares different editions, will be a testemony of incredible clinical dermatology evolution since last century
