I was extremely pleased with this purchase. It is written in easy to understand terms and it definitely helped me understand the dynamics of dialysis. This book would also be good for a new patient of dialysis who wanted to learn more about kidney disease. I would recommend this book.

I purchased this book at Barns and Noble Florida in 2007 when I was about to commence training,The head nurse in my unit had also recommended this book for new staff. I cherish this book because it is so straight forward and very informative.
