This book takes some relatively complicated concepts & makes them near impossible to understand by using convoluted language & terrible organization. On numerous occasions, I had to take several minutes to parse out an overly-lengthy & complex sentence in this book, only to discover that the point being conveyed was either simple or not important. I also thought the organization of this book was lacking in that the chapters were often too long, and the discussion of various concepts was often not organized in a way that made it easy to cognitively proceed from one concept to the next.

If you are thinking about getting this book because you liked the Lange CV physiology book, I must warn you that this book is VERY different from the CV physiology one (which was actually good).

I wish all textbooks could be like this one. Very readable; very well organized, and it is no longer than it needs to be. Beginning with functional anatomy, it moves onto cover big-picture functions of the kidney, and then with that context moves in for a more indepth look at each portion, separating function into the fates and control of various ions and other molecules. Why and how the kidney does what it does, where it does it, when it does it makes sense. Then all of a sudden, I found myself predicting rather than memorizing how various diuretics work and how the kidneys play a part in correcting (or causing) various acid-base disturbances.

Vander's Renal is definitely in my top 3 all-time favorite textbooks. When I compare the thorough simplicity of how Vander's Renal Physiology covers the kidney compared to the general physiology texts, there is absolutely no comparison.

I purchased both the paperback and Kindle versions: As the paperback has only two color printing, all of the diagrams and tables translate very well into the greyscale Kindle. The Kindle version is very well done.

Format: Paperback
If you are ordering this as a medical student, know that it is not nearly as thorough as you probably need. This is a tiny little book that gives a good overview of renal phys in a very easy, step by step manner. If you have a physiology review text, or another physiology book, stick with that. I liked the book, but for the money, and given the time constraints we are all under, suggest skipping it.

This book effectively communicates complicated ideas in a simple manner. There is a clear narrative style that helps link together the factual concepts.The diagrams are minimalistic and straight forward. This is my go-to textbook for renal physiology.

Not as good as the cardio on, but very helpful. Would like to see a few improvements in the charts, diagrams, and graphs.
