3.0 out of 5 stars No More Kidney Stones, hard to read on Kindle Aug. 2 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the book very informative and I will follow the suggested food list of items not to eat when you have kidney stones, however I regret buying on my Kindle as the writer continuously referred to previous chapters or charts that were difficult to get back to. I would recommend paper back to store in your kitchen as a reference book.

As someone who has worked for a number of years on providing laboratory results for stone patients I am intimately familiar with the challenges kidney stone patients face. As even some of the other reviews point out many in the medical industry have little information of value to share with those who suffer from kidney stones. This is all the more alarming when you take into account the fact that most people who have one kidney stone will have another in their lifetime.
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!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Layman's understanding Feb. 18 2001
Format:Paperback
Having read the book and suffered the passing of stones, I find the text to be as articulate and as genuine as the author. It is informative, explanatory and easy to understand. The knowledge given allows one to focus on prevention and to take charge of one's own care. My only suggestion would be to include a listing of all foods low in oxalate, so that changing one's diet and life style become reasonable and realistic goals. I have found this txt to be worthwhile enough to purchase again, but this time as a gift to a fellow "stoner."

5.0 out of 5 stars a must-read for kidney stone sufferers April 6 2000
By JRM
Format:Paperback
I've suffered from painful kidney stones for some time. Despite changes to my diet and lifestyle, I could never completely rid myself of this problem. A friend recommended this book to me and I loved it! I've been stone free for almost three months. This is truly a must-read for anyone plagued with the pain and annoyance of kidney stones.

I'm a nurse and recently fell victim to kidney stones. My first reaction (after the pain) was to read everything I could get my hands on. I found this book and so far,it's the best one out there. I would recommend it to anyone that suffers from stones and will also share it with my patients. Thanks for the GREAT and easy to understand information!!!
