From the reviews:

The goal is to provide a resource for medical residents and fellows on the variety of kidney diseases. This book is a helpful resource for physicians practicing in a variety of settings. The book presents all the relevant information in fairly lucid manner without compromising on the details. I would strongly recommend this book for nephrology fellows and medical residents who are interested in nephrology. (Vamsi Rokkam, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2013)
