The author adroitly uses his experiences to clarify various facets of dialysis, from the basics of the procedure to its effects on patients' lifestyles and work. Northam injects each example with his caustic humor and wit. His ability to put a humorous spin on life-or-death situations is remarkable, and he's created a stimulating book about a truly dire subject.
A fine book about one man's experiences with kidney disease and dialysis that may provide hope to others faced with similar diagnoses.
