If some people need to upgrade their cars or computers every five years or even sooner, why not do the same with their kidney books? This particular model, coming out some six years after the previous version, is now in its fourth edition. Formerly published in two volumes, it now consists of one volume but with the same number of pages (2000), bulky and heavy, so that those wishing to read it rather than decorate their libraries must undergo a certain amount of physical discomfort. They will, however, find the effort well worthwhile.
