Drs Walter B. and E. Dorinda Shelley have crafted a masterpiece in compiling their book Advanced Dermatologic Therapy. These skilled authors, clinicians, and researchers have compiled a truly remarkable volume that is a pleasure to look at as well as to read. From the inside of the front cover to the binding on the back, this book is packed with practical information uniquely intertwined with high-quality color photographs; annotated bibliographies in every chapter; references to source books on diseases and drugs; names, addresses, and telephone numbers for everything relevant to a dermatologic practice; and an aphorism for every situation and mood. When finding "Zen and the Art of Patient Maintenance," and "What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do," or the "Doctor in a Corner" as two of the first several sections, the reader will know that he or she is in for an unusual treat.
