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).

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jacob & Kiki Hantla TOP 1000 REVIEWER on January 1, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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 has a ton of great information contained in a short, articulate monograph. I've come to really enjoy the Lange physiology monograph series, and this is no exception. The content is up-to-date and well-organized, and the questions at the end of each chapter are well thought out and helpful for solidifying concepts, though they may be a bit too detailed for undergraduate students taking general physiology courses.

The only thing that is lacking are the illustrations; although they are somewhat helpful, they are sub-par compared to the text itself, and rarely did anything to help illustrate concepts for me. Also, note that there is little kidney pathophysiology included, and so an additional text may be needed for such topics. Overall, however, I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to expand their knowledge of kidney function.

Format: Paperback
This is the classic book for learning renal physiology. The book is small and compact, and does a great job explaining the basic concepts in renal physiology. It is not for advanced study or for learning renal pathology, but is great for covering the basics. It is appropriate for medical and graduate students as well as other health-related students. While not perfect, overall I think this is a solid choice for learning renal physiology, and would highly recommend it. For study of physiology more generally, I would recommend any of the various Guyton books on Medical Physiology.

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.

This book was in great condition which I did not expect. It was brand new with no marks on it. Also very helpful when learning renal physiology for medical school.
