“This is a comprehensive review of hypertension with an essential emphasis on the manifestation of high blood pressure in individuals with chronic kidney disease. … the book is suitable primarily for nephrologists, fellows in training, and all other allied kidney disease associates, such as dialysis nurses, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners with a nephrology practice focus. … The full-color figures help illustrate the concepts.” (Kenneth Kafui Afenya, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2018)
