    "Finally, a comprehensive scar book.... Drs. Andrew Krakowski and Peter Shumaker have gathered a stellar group of authors to tackle everything you ever wanted to know and more about the evaluation and management of scars.... Each section provides extensive insight from different authors who are considered leaders in their fields."

    John Browning, MD. Pediatric
    Dermatology Vol. 34 No. 5 631, 2017.
    "It serves as an excellent reference for both junior and seasoned plastic surgeons desiring to have an overview of the most up-to-date knowledge available on scarring and fibrosis.  Written by two dermatologists, it is refreshing to see this undertaking carried out in a multispecialty manner with attention to detail in its tone and content.  The Scar Book reads much like a novel, and though the thought of scar typically leads one to look away, this edition is delightfully intriguing and offers a substantially unique perspective on scar that draws one further into its well-written pages."
