This is the third “manual” that Dr. Pillsbury has authored and it is clear that the present book most closely approaches the type of book that should be available to those who are administering primary medical care. As such it is clearly not designed for the dermatologist. The first two chapters, which deal with the basic science aspects of dermatology, are taken almost verbatim from the earlier published in 1961 and are therefore not completely up to date.

After the introductory chapter, however, the book takes on an entirely new and probably unique flavor. There are 21 chapters on dermatological diagnosis. Six of the chapters are oriented by body regions; the remainder are grouped roughly on an etiological basis.

There is very little text, as the main body of the book consists of clinical photographs. There are a total of 290 figures in a 290-page book with no more than two figures per printed page.
