"This is a nice review of the many functions of the kidney that is a useful study guide for first-time students as well as instructors of renal physiology. The textboxes reviewing clinical applications and summaries provide a quick resource, while the study questions require more in-depth understanding. The answers to the questions and integrative cases are well written and concise, providing a very helpful study resource. The book does not try to review the latest insights in kidney function, instead focusing on the basics to make the learning process easier. This is recommended for students and instructors of nephrology."-Jon Webb, MD(Universityof Kentucky College of Medicine) Doody Review: 76/100
