“The book is written in an easily readable style, with each section well written, comprehensive and fully referenced. ... Clear tables and diagrams are used in conjunction with medical photography ... . This text is niche, and would only be pertinent to a subsection of physicians or those interested in dermatology.” (Stephen Mounsey, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 79 (4), April, 2018)

“The book is intended for dermatologists managing patients with atopic dermatitis. It aims to educate clinicians on the best treatment approaches based on sound clinical studies. The audience is dermatologists. … This is an excellent reference on how to treat atopic dermatitis. The scientific mechanisms of action are clearly explained and provide a logical basis for designing a treatment plan for these patients.” (Patricia Wong, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2018)
