In The Press

“This book takes a refreshing and original approach to an understanding of nephrology. The authors set out to use a Q&A framework to identify a handful of key messages and teaching points around 6 subdivisions of the field. … this is an excellent and refreshing text which would fit well on the shelf of any jobbing clinician, be that person practising in specialty medicine or in primary care.” (Dr. Roger Greenwood,, August, 2015)

“This excellent new textbook provides medical students and junior doctors with a valuable resource to allow them to gain an understanding of the key topics in renal medicine. … I would highly recommend this textbook to medical students, junior doctors or renal nurses and also as a useful teaching resource for educators.” (Samira Bell,, July, 2015)

“Mark Findlay and Christopher Isles have written a refreshingly concise primer in renal medicine. It is easy to read and logically organised, and it uses real-world cases to raise and answer clinically relevant questions. … Use this book and you will not go wrong. No longer can non-nephrologists claim that renal medicine is just too difficult. For those of us who teach, Findlay and Isles have set the bar high.” (Donal J. O’Donoghue, British Journal of Renal Medicine, Vol. 20 (3), 2015)
