5.0 out of 5 stars Great text for those interested in nephrology October 1, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a medicine resident interested in nephrology. This book starts out with the basics of renal anatomy/physiology, approach to patients with kidney disease, and goes on to define/classify, and provide an outline for diagnosis/therapy of common kidney disorders. Its depth suits perfectly medicine residents, and probably, as others have mentioned, fellows starting their training. Those looking for a more in-depth text might consider Johnson&Feehaly's Comprehensive Clinical nephrology.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for IM residents July 16, 2004
If you are looking for a comprehensive introduction to kidney disease as a resident - this is the book. It has as much information as you would want as a resident (probably more than you want!). Great reference for renal fellows who are just starting out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book but can be improved. October 15, 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would recommend this book for anyone interested in Nephrology. It has excellent illustrations and covers most topics thouroughly. However, transplant section and hypertension could have been better.Most of all it is not expensive!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great review for the boards April 7, 2011
By Reddque
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is going to be a short review.

Although I studied this book for the nephrology boards, I highly recommend that all nephrology fellows finish it in the first few months of fellowship. This is an NKF publication that will provide a solid overview of kidney disease.. You will have to buy Johnson and Fehally naturally, but that is a big book that will you be reading over and over during your career. Start with this little (560 pages or so) book at a rate of a chapter a day (5-10 pages)
