This multi-author textbook with contributions of 59 authors from India, USA, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Thailand, and Oman aims to be a guide for those who are about to develop their own laser clinic, for beginners and experienced laser users. The Textbook of Laser in Dermatology comes in a fresh layout that makes reading joyful. It is a book for practice. I am sure that it won't fix dust on the bookshell. Laser physics, occupational safety, and ethical issues are the openers. Pre- and post-laser care is discussed in detail as well as the issue of anesthesia and cooling devices. Laser types, intense pulsed light, and medical indications cover the largest part of this book. There are numerous high-quality photographs and other illustration. The text passages are clearly structures and at the end of any chapter there is an up-to-date reference list. Adverse events are discussed openly. Trials are analyzed under the light of evidence-based medicine principles.

The book does also contain chapters on subdermal and endovenous laser use. It would be an option for the next edition to include laser-assisted liposuction as well. Cryolipolysis is a technique without a laser connection but the editors decided to include this theme. Maybe, in the second edition, a chapter on excimer-light can be incorporated since the technique is developing fast and is much cheaper that excimer laser.

Indians are great businessmen. The tips and tricks for those who want to purchase a laser are therefore a teaching experience. The same is true for the chapter on social media.

A very useful part of this beautiful and most valuable book is the appendix, where one can find consent forms for patients and record sheets for various laser applications. A glossary explains laser terminology, and an index helps to find the interesting subject quickly.

I want to congratulate the editors and co-authors for this fine piece of dermatological book prints and I hope to see many following editions in the next years.
