“Both the failings and the successes are outlined in a way that should make this book a compelling read, not just for the well-informed renal physician, but also for planners and policy makers whose thinking and actions are integral to the way we practice medicine.”

“This book should be a valuable tool not only to improve knowledge of students and nephrologists, but also to guide health policy decision-making”
