Dermatologic Surgery: Principles and Practice, edited by Randall K. Roenigk and Henry H. Roenigk, Jr, should be standard reading for all dermatology residents. It is a pleasure to see such a comprehensive, yet very readable, book in the literature.

Although broad in scope, Dermatologic Surgery: Principles and Practice is a well-organized cooperative effort among the leading physicians in the field of dermatologic surgery. Among the authors are Frederic E. Mohs, John A. Zitelli, and Ronald G. Wheeland, to name a few. The expertise of these well-known dermatologic surgeons is presented in a detailed yet clear manner. Both basic science and practical aspects are addressed, making this book a good solid foundation on which to build. However, Dermatologic Surgery: Principles and Practice should not be reserved just for dermatology residents; practicing dermatologic surgeons will also derive benefits from this text.

Essential to any good book on surgery are photographs and diagrams.
