The Ninth Edition has been radically re–engineered to match the modern day challenges faced by dermatologists. It is 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. A high priority has been placed on the ease of extracting key information quickly: diagnostic algorithms and management ladders help the reader choose appropriate treatment strategies. More images than ever over 5000 in total aid diagnosis by displaying variations in disease manifestations according to body location, skin type and severity.
