Written by a leading dermatologist, " The Blue Man and Other
Stories of the Skin" provides a compelling and accessible
introduction to the life of our largest organ, while also
recounting the authorOCOs experiences with memorable patients he
has treated who suffer from mysterious skin conditions. Robert
Norman begins by highlighting the qualities of the skin, tracing
the history of its conditions and diseases, then examining the
cultural, social and psychological impact of both color and
irregularity. The book also features an absorbing collection of
stories about some of his most intriguing patients: from a man
whose skin mysteriously turned blue, to a hypochondriacal woman who
begins to show signs of a life-threatening disease. This is a
fascinating account of the dynamic nature of the skin, and the
people who inhabit it."
