In this new edition, Lewis has managed to include a good deal of new material which brings the book up to date without greatly enlarging the size of the text. It is no small accomplishment, for, in addition to new sections on significant basic science developments, corticosteroids, dermabrasion, and tattooing, there is a large number of new illustrations for a total of some five hundred—all of them clear and well selected.
Designed primarily as a text for students and as a guide for practitioners, it follows the usual format with emphasis on history taking, physical examination, laboratory tests, and treatment, all of it written clearly, concisely, and without the distractions present in many encyclopedic texts. It is, in fact, as the title indicates, a practical, well-organized, uncomplicated introduction to dermatology.
