A superb reference for nephrologists. Comprehensive, authoritative, well referenced and succinctly written text. Generously illustrated and delightfully bound in three volumes for the old fashioned reader with a CD-ROM of equal quality for the more modern. I would hate to be without it. * BMA Medical Book Competition 2006 *
