This book is intended for the lay reader, although it contains information which is presented in such a way that it makes interesting reading for others who wish orientation concerning knowledge of the skin. Fourteen chapters provide discussions on the structure of the skin and its function, the relation of health to the skin, care of the face, quackery, diseases of the skin, care of the hair and other problems of similar nature. The book is not too technical for those who have a genuine interest in their skin problems, although of course it is not intended as a textbook for medical students or others who have need for specialized training. It is the type of book to which the physician can refer his patients who want more information than can be obtained during the average consultation session.
