Not User Friendly
Well, I am still looking for a fast derm reference guide. This book has a list of lesions by region, but these are not linked directly to the lesion description. One has to waste
time copying and pasting the name into the search engine to go to the description. Then, once there, the photos are too small and there is no zoom function. It might be a good guide in paperback, but not on the tablet.
