The book Clinical Photomedicine has the goal of integrating clinical and scientific photomedicine in a format suitable for the practicing clinician. Overall, the text does an outstanding job in achieving this objective. Clinical Photomedicine has six sections covering the basic science of photomedicine, acute and chronic effects of light on normal skin, photoimmunology, photosensitivity diseases, photoprotection, and the use of light in therapy. The list of contributors reads like a who's who in the field of photomedicine. The authors have written a book that is clinically relevant and yet touches on many exciting areas of research and controversy that exist in photodermatology. Additionally, the book has good figures and clinical color photographs. Dermatologists at various stages in their careers will find this book useful. Difficult principles and nomenclature are made understandable for the novice, while the text retains sufficient ''meat'' to satisfy the needs of individuals experienced in the field
