Description of ABC of Dermatology 5th edition
I think the photos are excellent in quality and scope. The text is easy to understand and well written. For a non-dermatologist, this is a good introductory textbook that I would recommend. While it is called ABC of Derm, it is really quite in-depth than that, at least for a non-specialist. It is a great book for a typical resident in internal medicine or family medicine training who wants to feel more confident when seeing patients with skin rashes.
