Well - this book rocked my world!
When it first arrived in the post I was a bit taken back by how thin it was. Its a real light weight in comparison to most books on the subject and my first thoughts were that I had probably just waisted my money. But no, this turned out to be the most useful book on IPL I have ever read.
Firstly the writers stick to the point and don't ramble on. The layout of information allows your mind to absorb it in a logical fashion so the information retains in your mind without having to read it two or three times.
The photos are relevant to the information presented around them but the most useful thing about this book, that sets it above all the rest was the use of Results Tables. Basically charts showing results from numerous IPL physicians, what setting they had used, what results they got, different treatment intervals, different skin types etc etc.
These were fantastic and made it easy to compare differing results others had had with different situations and allowed me as the reader to make some of my own assessments as to what settings and techniques I might try for the future and benefit of my own patients.
And this has to be the most enjoyable technical book I have ever read.
