Review quote

'I was very impressed with the content of this book. The practical chapters I found very informative, and perhaps more importantly, easy to follow.' Laurence Spicer, London 'I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this ... the recipes especially suit those who work, where I have found recipes in other books take too long. The language is straightforward and understandable for those new to kidney disease and those who are more knowledgeable.' Lisa Brereton, London 'I found the book very readable and I expect it to help meet patients'educational needs. It has been thoughtfully put together and contains some very useful information.' George Hartley, Chief Renal Dietitian, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle-upon-Tyne 'An excellent book!' Louise Wells, Renal Dietetic Clinical Specialist, York University Hospitals NHS Trust
