“A superb group of contributors from Europe and North America join [Schwartz] in this text. The overall result is a concise compendium of current knowledge about skin cancers of all sorts. The book is nicely illustrated with beautiful color pictures and is extensively referenced. The material is up to date and comprehensive.” (American Society for Dermatologic Surgery)
“Fully revised and expanded, this new edition now includes full colour photographs and illustrations throughout to aid recognition and diagnosis, and covers the latest developments and treatment modalities. This is a very good introductory book for dermatology residents and medical students taking their dermatology elective. The basic principles of treatment and diagnosis of skin cancer are covered in a clear and concise manner. The information is well organized and presented in an easy to understand format.” (Doodys Book Reviews, December 2008)
“The revised and expanded edition includes premalignant and malignant skin disorders including dermoscopy, a noninvasive technique for the evaluation of pigmented lesions of the skin and mucosa. Considering that skin cancer is doubling every 15 to 20 years worldwide this is a timely update. Among Hispanic men in California a melanoma epidemic is occurring, evidenced by a 1.8% annual increase in the incidence of invasive melanomas.” (E-Streams, September 2008)
