From reviews:
"... a perfect solution to the struggle that dermatology diagnosis presents to primary care physicians and other providers..."Fam Med 2019;51(5):451–452.
"... remarkably good value. I have little doubt that this will be a highly successful textbook given the popularity of the New Zealand dermatology website and the excellence of the clinical photography."Ulster Med J 2017;86(3):1–1.

Dermatology Made Easy is based on the hugely popular DermNet New Zealand website and is designed to help GPs, medical students and dermatologists diagnose skin conditions with confidence.
The book starts by providing a series of comprehensive tables, complete with over 500 thumbnail photos, to aid diagnosis according to symptoms, morphology, or body site. The diagnosis narrowed down, cross-references then guide you to more detailed descriptions, and another 700 photographs, covering:

  • common infections
  • inflammatory rashes
  • non-inflammatory conditions
  • skin lesions
Every section provides consistent information on the disorder:
  • who gets it and what causes it?
  • what are the clinical features and does it cause any complications?
  • how do you diagnose it?
  • how do you treat it and how long does it take to resolve?
The book concludes with a comprehensive section on further investigations and treatment options.
Dermatology Made Easy combines the essential focus of the Made Easy book series with the authority and knowledge base of DermNet New Zealand's unparalleled resources.
Printed in full colour throughout.
Published in association with DermNet New Zealand

Review:

Five-star Reviews: Excellent resource "Great resource with pictures. I'm an ANP & this is useful for skin conditions when the patients are in the room or even when they've left to look up suitable terminology for writing notes. I work in a non teaching practice so I sometimes have to 'google' my way through consultations. This book really helps." Amazon reviewer Valuable "It's a fabulous resource. I am a pharmacist and we are increasingly expected to respond to dermatology related signs and symptoms in community pharmacies as we rapidly become the first port of call for minor ailments. I use this book every day and have been able to confidently assess most skin conditions, using this well organised and easy to use book, and therefore suggest the best course of action, whether that be symptomatic treatment with a watch and wait approach or alternatively to see their GP." Amazon reviewer Very satisfied "Very easy to find information about different skin conditions, written quite briefly and to the point with all the necessary knowledge one needs to deal with skin challenges." Amazon reviewer This book is extremely useful and concise especially regarding Dermatological diagnosis "This is a superb book. I have used the website DermNet New Zealand for a long time now. This book is extremely useful and concise especially regarding Dermatological diagnosis." Amazon reviewer Fantastic "Highly recommended for any ANP/ENPs out there" Amazon reviewer Excellent & easy to use text book "Essential reading for any health care professional interested in dermatology. An excellent and easy to use resource." Amazon reviewer Truly a tour-de-force "I am truly gobsmacked by the amount of effort that would have gone into putting a book like this together. That the author did a remarkable job goes without saying; that she did it while doing a million other things is more or less the Amanda we have all come around to expecting; but the fact that she did this alone is what is so truly mind blowing. I had to use it yesterday and was amazed at the logic that has gone into organising the book." Amazon reviewer Fantastic book "Loved the website as my go to dermatology resource, and the book provides the same great info with plenty of useful pictures." Amazon reviewer Good text book "Very good book with lots of pictures of various skin conditions. Also it is considerably cheaper than most dermatology books." Amazon reviewer Good read for the subject "Very clear explanations" Amazon reviewer Simple as the name says "Good book from the founder of DermnetNZ, Professor Amanda Oakley. The layout is simple and picyures are very good. Good value for money" Amazon reviewer Five Stars "like the website - knowledgable /easy learning and full of good photos" Amazon reviewer Lovely and useful "Great book" Amazon reviewer Five Stars "love this book. Great illustrations" Amazon reviewer
