The book was divided into 4 parts, the basics of brown skin, melasma in brown skin, vitiligo in brown skin, and finally other management options available for both conditions. It has a total of 33 chapters, each of which was equipped with clear photos and well-illustrated tables. It is an excellent well-written comprehensive textbook that is well-referenced and is highly recommended for all clinicians.
