When this book first appeared in German, it met with immediate success. The English translation is therefore most welcome. It contains 99 color plates of excellent quality and good size so that details of lesions are easy to see. The black and white illustrations are well selected. The text is brief, yet adequate, and the suggestions for treatment are standard, practical, and current. The emphasis is on the more commonly encountered diseases with a view to meeting the needs of nondermatological specialists, general practitioners, and students. The book is well indexed and has an excellent list of references.
