Students, scientists, and physicians will find themselves pleased by the detail and clarity of the eighth edition of Diseases of the Kidney and Urinary Tract edited by Dr Schrier. Schrier ensured that all contributors were able to maintain a delivery of information that was both historic and cutting edge, with references to the current trials and speculations in medicine. Although the aesthetics are appealing, with detailed gold lettering on all 3 volumes, the reader is immediately aware that the primary and educational focus is on the urinary tract.
