To date, this book provides the best overall review I have seen. It lays out in clear and concise language why different types of kidney stones occur, what steps can be taken to prevent them, and lastly provides examples of how to incorporate these steps.
As for few the few negative comments posters have left:
1.) This book is not a medical text, it is written for the patient, so additional detail would provide little value to the majority of readers.
2.) This book is not intended as a complete diet guide as it size would have to be increased extensively to include all of the potential informtion. Rather the diet information presented here is intended to help the patient to begin establishing guidlines.
I have referred this book to large number of poeple and have gotten nothing but positive feedback!!!
