    Fantastic tool

    Fantastic educational tool for anyone wanting to know about kidney health and kidney failure. This book is thorough and detailed as well as an easy read for the non clinical setting. I am thrilled to have purchased 10 of these and provided them to various local clinics to supplement their patient education. I HIGHLY recommend this for anyone with an interest in kidney health.
