Review quote

'Being able to point people with psoriasis towards a book which will help answer many of their questions in an easy and accessible format has to be welcomed. The authors of this book clearly have great experience of working through patients' concerns...given the frequently disheartened stories we hear from the public about their GPs knowing very little about Psoriasis, it should be required on every medical school syllabus as well!' Margaret Martin, The Journal of the Psoriasis Association
