Excellent resource "Great resource with pictures. I'm an ANP & this is useful for skin conditions when the patients are in the room or even when they've left to look up suitable terminology for writing notes. I work in a non teaching practice so I sometimes have to 'google' my way through consultations. This book really helps." Amazon reviewer
Valuable "It's a fabulous resource. I am a pharmacist and we are increasingly expected to respond to dermatology related signs and symptoms in community pharmacies as we rapidly become the first port of call for minor ailments. I use this book every day and have been able to confidently assess most skin conditions, using this well organised and easy to use book, and therefore suggest the best course of action, whether that be symptomatic treatment with a watch and wait approach or alternatively to see their GP." Amazon reviewer

Truly a tour-de-force "I am truly gobsmacked by the amount of effort that would have gone into putting a book like this together.
That the author did a remarkable job goes without saying; that she did it while doing a million other things is more or less the Amanda we have all come around to expecting; but the fact that she did this alone is what is so truly mind blowing.
I had to use it yesterday and was amazed at the logic that has gone into organising the book." Amazon reviewer
Fantastic book "Loved the website as my go to dermatology resource, and the book provides the same great info with plenty of useful pictures." Amazon reviewer
Good text book "Very good book with lots of pictures of various skin conditions. Also it is considerably cheaper than most dermatology books." Amazon reviewer
