The quality of the many full-colour illustrations is of a very high order and the text remains very readable. I checked this book for a few of the common and rare skin conditions that I have been involved in managing over the last year and found the information to enhance my own literature review and to concisely summarise the most important information needed by a neonatologist.
When I was medical student I was told that “the skin is what you need to keep your innards in”. I am now wiser and more experienced, but without a copy of “Neonatal Dermatology” I would be considerably less knowledgeable about this fascinating speciality.

BMA Book Awards 2008 - Highly Commended
"I cannot praise this book too highly. The first edition was a revelation and the second builds on the quality of the first. Very little is published on neonatal dermatology but there are many clinical problems arising from it the quality of the writing, the illustrations and the layout are superb. I recommended the first edition to many others, and have used it frequently since I came across it I am sure that the second edition will earn a similar place on my bookshelf near to my computer and right at hand."
