Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: B. Peter E. Sawaya, MD (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This comprehensive, highly illustrated, single-volume textbook covers the clinical aspects of renal diseases with emphasis on diagnosis and treatment.
Purpose: The editors attempt to provide an up-to-date academic and scientific overview of the clinical work of a nephrologist, including fluid and electrolytes, hypertension, diabetes, dialysis, and transplantation. Their goal is to produce a useful resource for clinicians, teachers, and nephrology trainees. I believe the editors and contributors have succeeded superbly in meeting these objectives by providing a rather unique and very valuable textbook.
Audience: Clinical nephrologists, nephrology educators, and nephrology trainees are the intended audience. One hundred and fifty authors contributed to the book and all are experts in their field.
Features: This comprehensive and clinically-oriented book covers all aspects of nephrology in a succinct, lucid, and very comprehensible format. It is rich in colorful figures, diagrams, and tables that are very clear and well integrated with the text. Using this powerful format, the authors make complex issues rather easy to understand.
Assessment: This book makes no attempt to replace other excellent, heavily referenced, and multivolume textbooks in nephrology that are currently available. Rather, it provides a richly illustrated, clinically-oriented book. I find it extremely valuable for the practicing nephrologist and especially to trainees in nephrology. Also, this book is a superb resource for teachers/educators in nephrology. The format and the well-designed illustrations make this book quite unique in the field of nephrology.
5 Stars! from Doody

Comprehensive Clinical Nephrology moves from the laboratory bench to the bedside in a way that is optimal for a comprehensive textbook. I think this book is outstanding. It could well become a standard textbook for practicing nephrologists, trainees, and internal-medicine specialists.
