"This is a brief guide to kidney stone prevention. It is intended as a pocket reference on medical management for the prevention of kidney stone recurrence. ... The editors mostly meet their intended goals, and have compiled a useful guide for students, trainees, and general urologists looking for a review or quick reference." (Mark J. Mann, Doody's Book Reviews, April, 2015)
