Ashraf Badawi brings his expertise to a thorough and practically-oriented handbook. His passion towards lasers is evidenced through his teachings, and is as perceptible in this book as it is when he lectures on the topic in person. He is truly gifted in making even the most complex concepts clearly accessible to novices and experts alike.

“Ashraf Badawi's Manual of Lasers is probably the most engaging, thoughtful and useful of any of the world's major laser textbooks. Badawi's writing is easy to read, easy to understand and, most importantly, it is easy to retain. The chapters on laser physics are magisterial in the beauty of their simplicity and the clarity of their presentation. No other explanation of laser physics have I found to be more accessible. No one has a better gift than he does for explaining the physics of lasers. The chapters on the practical applications of lasers include countless helpful practical tips, eloquent illustrations and illuminating before and after photographs. This authoritative and comprehensive book is fascinating and informative and it will be enormously useful to dermatologists, plastic surgeons and all professionals who work in the laser field. If you buy only one laser book, it should be this one.” - Dr. Christopher Rowland Payne, Past President of the European Society for Cosmetic & Aesthetic Dermatology, Founding Editor in Chief of the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, Consultant Dermatologist to The London Clinic, London
