Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I was pleased to be given the opportunity to review the third edition of Comprehensive Clinical Nephrology, the goal of which is to provide 'comprehensive coverage' of contemporary nephrology.
All chapters have been extensively revised and updated. Furthermore, a new chapter on Intensive Care Unit Nephrology has been added.
Whilst primarily aimed at clinicians, the superb readability of the text, combined with excellent illustrations, broadens its appeal to the wider renal care community. The CD-ROM, containing images from the textbook, may be used for educational purposes.
In conclusion, this is an excellent clinical and educational resource That I can thoroughly recommend to all members of the multidisciplinary team involved in the day-to-day care and management of renal patients.

Journal of Renal Care, June 2008

This is one of the most easy-to-read nephrology text books I have come across. Although it was bought to be used as a reference book, very often I end up reading the whole chapter or even chapters as the text simply flows and effortlessly makes the subject very interesting. It manages to make complex subjects easy to understand and interesting without making it simplistic. It also provides an excellent overview of all the relevant clinical studies and guidelines. I would thoroughly recommend it.
