A new, single-volume dermatology textbook is always cause for excitement. Promising up-to-date information coupled with portability, such books must also be regarded with some wariness, since they seem almost too good to be possible.

Fortunately, Dermatology by Braun-Falco and associates does not disappoint. Encased in its own cardboard slipcover, this is a solidly bound tome of the type one would expect from a premier German publishing house. While it is the same thickness as the first volume of the fifth edition of Fitzpatrick's Dermatology in General Medicine, this book by Braun-Falco et al has a smaller footprint—about an inch less in each dimension—making it easier to handle. Not lightweight by any means, it nonetheless seems lighter than the Fitzpatrick, and its shape renders it less prone to sprain the wrist of the reader.
