Schofield is an internist/hospitalist and Robinson is a clinical oncologist. They have written a fine book on prevention, detection, and treatment of melanoma for the intelligent layman.

This is a serious treatment of a serious subject. Fully half the book is about treatment, which likely reflects the bias of the authors and the presumed target audience, people with melanoma. The ideal reader would be the thoughtful nonphysician, as the authors make sophisticated points in relatively simple language.
