The book appears to be quite comprehensive, useful and handy for postgraduate students and practitioners in Dermatology. The book has been divided in to six sections, part A to F. Part A deals with gems of dermatology for PG entrance. Part B highlights basic dermatology. Part C depicts most common dermatoses for undergraduates. Miscellaneous dermatoses find a place in section D. Part E covers various aspects of Dermatosurgery. Part F is all about multiple choice questions (MCQ). There are many new angles added to the book like 'Dermatology at a glance', 'approaches to diagnosis'. For competitive examinations MCQ and 'mental block' have been designed specially. Dr. Gharami needs to be congratulated for this wonderful title.

However, there are certain limitations in this book which I am sure that the author would like to address in the next edition. There is overcrowding of ideas i.e. in a single book topics and approaches for undergraduates, postgraduates, academicians, practitioners, all have been pushed hard.

I am afraid how practical the concept is! There is scope of improving the quality of some of the photographs in the book.

Nevertheless, this book with a unique way of presentation is an honest effort by Dr. Gharami and his endeavor should be appreciated thoroughly.
