Price and Sinclair have composed a small, inviting paperback introduction to cutaneous surgery. The book is aimed at the primary care practitioner, for whom it seeks to demystify simple cutaneous procedures. An 8-part table of contents is itemized on the cover, where a different color is assigned to each chapter. Colored bars at the outer edges of the pages correspond to this scheme.

The chapters are "Operative Set-up and Equipment," "Local Anesthesia," "Surgery and the Skin," "Treatment Planning," "Avoiding Complications," "Suturing Techniques and Removal," "Surgical Procedures," and "Examining Your Practice."
