1. I am a busy FP doc at a military base and I see a considerable amount of dermatologic complaints. I try to take care of most of it myself (since we have no dermatologist on staff) and find this book indispensable to my daily practice. I open it practically every day. For those of you who think the ‘baby’ Habif is enough, it’s not! Trust me, I tried to scrape by with the ‘baby’ version for years before I bit the bullet and bought it. The sections on acne, eczema, dermatophytosis, and rosacea are outstanding.
2. Without a doubt, the best practical derm book out there to help you wade through the countless derm conditions that can be seen in primary care medicine. Thorough, easy to understand and great pictures. What else can you want in a derm book?
3. I previously lauded the 3rd edition. Now I am extremely impressed by the latest edition. There are more pictures and elaborate details about diagnosis and treatment. But what I consider the best improvement are the expanded tables in each chapter. These tables detail recommended evaluations, treatments and differential diagnosis.
