Andrews' Diseases of the Skin: Clinical Dermatology, 9th ed

Arch Dermatol. 2001;137(4):518. doi:

Andrews' Diseases of the Skin: Clinical Dermatology is renowned as an easy-to-read, single-volume text designed for practicing dermatologists. An up-to-date edition was eagerly awaited because the eighth edition was published more than 10 years ago. A reading of the ninth edition makes it clear that it was well worth the wait. The authors' primary goal was to maintain a single-volume text for use "in the clinical setting on the desktop, not as an after-the-fact library resource."(pvii) The authors further propose that because their text has limited authorship, it allows them to have consistent discussions without redundancy. These objectives are handsomely met.
