Format: Paperback
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!!!

By A Customer on Dec 3 1998
Format: Paperback
The authors provide a good overview of the relevant anatomy, physiology, and surgical management of stone disease, which is helpful and intelligible. The same cannot be said for the other chapters: the dietitian co-author fails to do much but adulterate and confuse lists of information pulled out of her references. Despite her impressive credentials, correct information is freely intermingled with ludicrous instructions to "strain parsley from soup" and to emphasize beverages such as "potato juice." It is possible, with considerable effort, to resolve some of the apparent contradictions among her more conventional recommendations, but the encryption is largely secure. On the positive side, the discussion of calcium and some of the other more academic material was well-done. Overall, the medical chapters may be worth the purchase price, but look elsewhere for dietary advice. -a physician with stones

After my second kidney stone, I wondered how to be sure I would not form any more stones. My doctor told me "don't eat lettuce." This made no sense. I knew there had to be more information. I was amazed how little many doctors know about this condition, even doctors who treat it. Luckily I found this book, which is full of very useful information, practical advice and knowledge, which many doctors do not know, but should. After reading the book, I made an appointment to see the author (and the co-author dietician) and have been under his care for 1 and 1/2 years. Anyone who has had a kidney stone and knows how painful they are should read this book. There is much one can do to help prevent stones in the future.

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."

Format: Paperback
The book is certainly readable and at least mentions many medical conditions associated with stones, but it lacks details on stone surgeries and emphasizes diet to the point where sample menus are half the book! There is no comprehensive review of methods for managing kidney stone pain or specific details about the various surgeries. While many medical problems are listed, they often have inadequate explanation or details. The new edition of "The Kidney Stones Handbook" by another author (just published) is much better.

I found "no More Kidney Stones" to be a clear presentation on how stones are formed and how to avoid them, or control their growth once you have them. The explanations of various medical processes, and how different substances impact the function of the body, were particularly useful to me. The dietary material is very comprehensive and helpful, with extensive "do's" and "don'ts", and what to do if you "do" a "don't". I found the book to be easy reading and informative.
