Published Reviews

    "This is a very useful resource for the nephrology community. The field is quickly changing and potentially complex, but this book uses simple language and dynamic images to create an excellent teaching tool. There are few resources that include all relevant information in one place, but despite the growth of chronic kidney disease, this update does a good job of incorporating the important changes in the field. The online features on the associated website also enhance the value of the book. I plan to encourage nephrology trainees to use this resource for their education."-Jon Webb, MD(University of Kentucky College of Medicine) Doody Review: 83/100
