  • 'Rook's Textbook of Dermatology' is one of the most comprehensive reference works for dermatologists of all levels worldwide and has been at the forefront of international dermatology publishing since first appearing in 1968. The ninth edition has been radically re-engineered to match the modern day challenges faced by dermatologists. Once again it has been published as a combined digital and print resource, but with a new online platform enabling easier and faster navigation. A common structure to describe and discuss each disorder has been adopted throughout, whilst maintaining the depth of information for which Rook is renowned.
