Worried that Bennett's out-of-print Fundamental of Cutaneous Surgery is becoming almost impossible to obtain despite ardent trolling on eBay and at the local used book emporium? Or that the successor general dermatologic surgery texts are also getting a little long in the tooth? That the best newer books tend to focus on parts of "procedural dermatology," such as laser or cosmetic surgery, rather than addressing the whole? Given that Salasche's dermatologic surgery section in Bolognia's Dermatology text is magnificent, what if a committed resident wants a slightly lighter basic text for hauling about on surgery rotation?
