The late Arthur Rook established the Textbook of Dermatology as the most comprehensive work of reference available to the dermatologist. Covering all aspects of skin disease from basic science through pathology and epidemiology to clinical practice, the text is recognized for its unparalleled coverage of diagnosis.

Hailed by reviewers as 'a thorough, modern masterpiece' and 'the best textbook of dermatology in the world', and trusted by dermatologists around the world for accurate and comprehensive coverage, this clinical classic is the definitive source of information for all dermatologists. The new edition of this venerable classic extends the standard of excellence to include:

  • All-new coverage of cosmetic dermatology and sexually transmitted diseases
  • More material on evidence-based dermatology
  • Increased coverage of dermoscopy
  • More emphasis on therapeutics throughout the set
  • More contributions from a greater variety of international experts
  • New page design with larger illustrations for more immediate recognition

With fully searchable text and a fully searchable bank of more than 3,300 downloadable images, this online version puts specific information at your fingertips - when and where you need it - and is free with purchase of the four-volume set. The person-specific access code travels with you, not your computer, so you can check with Rook from any location.

Review:

"Somehow each edition gets better than the last...the greatest appeal of Rook; its predictable totality of everything dermatological...it is a superlative reference and will answer questions that no other text can...a thorough, modern masterpiece. It will provide years of service on your bookshelf"
Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology on the 7th edition

"Rook's Textbook of Dermatology is a 'must have' for those in training or practising dermatology and should be close at hand in the clinic."
British Journal of Dermatology

"...one of the towering academic and clinical achievements of twentieth century dermatology...no self-respecting dermatologist should even think of practising our specialty without a copy of this book close at hand...a delight to hold, a delight to browse, and a delight to read...As usual, Blackwell's designers have done a beautiful job."
Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology

"...continues the tradition of excellence for which the previous editions were justly acclaimed...it is difficult to imagine practising dermatology without ready access to this book and harder to imagine why one would try."
JAMA

"Essential. Indispensable. The fifth edition of "Rook," just out, is unarguably the best textbook of dermatology in the world."
British Medical Journal

"An outstanding 6th edition of a tried and tested textbook in our field!"
Aktuelle Dermatologie
