This concise textbook of dermatology is aimed at medical students
and those preparing for the MRCP and MRCGP examinations. The
information is presented in a highly accessible format, using double
page spreads for each topic. Extensive use of colour for both clinical
photographs and graphics makes for a superb appearance. For review for
examination preparation, key point boxes are provided. In this third
edition, extensive revision has been made to reflect changes in the
understanding of dermatological conditions at a molecular level and the
changes in clinical practice. In addition, the use of the internet for
dermatological information by both and patients is reviewed.
Summary: review of the book dermatology by gawkrodger
This book is very succinct and compared with the books by Habif and
fitzpatrick is very short and does not include even half of the
dermatological diseases. It discusses bacterial and fungal and viral
diseases of the skin with only. The explanation on each disease is good
but this book is definitely very short and is not good for doctors or
specialists in dermatology. In order to make it a good book it should
include all or most diseases of the skin and explain it in the same way
it is explained in this book.
Summary: Simple and Pretty
I am a fourth year medical student going into dermatology, and I got
this book for kicks because I am a book-a-holic and I liked the layout
and simplicity. Probably not the first place to go for information, but
might serve well as a book you leave around and flip through. I
recommend the American Academy of Dermatology website as a good
starting spot: check out their tutorials for medical students.
Summary: Best very short dermatology book.
The very best very short dermatology book. Need to supplement it with access to Wolf, references by Rapini, and even eMedicine.
Summary: Concise and excellent
This book is well illustrated as suggested by title. The pictures of
the different skin conditions are particular helpful in enhancing one's
memory of the subject. It offers ideal depth for undergraduate study
and is most helpful as pre-reading and review. I covered it in a week
and am sounding pretty much like a in class. Simplicity is the key to my liking of this book.
