For those of you who do not like reading book reviews, here's the bottom line. A good book (the second edition of Clinical Dermatology: A Color Guide to Diagnosis and Therapy) has just gotten better in the third edition. Clinical Dermatology is designed as a practical reference to the diagnosis and management of skin diseases for medical students, residents, and practicing physicians. It fulfills that goal as well or better than any other available text that I have seen. This book is a useful addition to the office for any student or practitioner who sees patients with skin diseases. If you don't currently have it (or ready access to it), you should. If you currently own the second edition and are considering moving on to the third (or if you would like a more in-depth review of the book) read on.
Similar to earlier editions, the book is organized into
