Musings of a Salt Whisperer
thank you Dr Topf
hope you like it.
I Thank you DR. Topf!! KOSTAS LAOUMTZIS, NEPHROLOGISTGREECE.
Dr. Topf thank you for writing this book! As a medical student in a PBL curriculum I am often oscillating between basic science texts and clinical case studies. Your book is wonderful at bridging the gap, filling in holes and strengthening my foundation. Is the book on Amazon the same as the pdf on this site? If so I'm investing in the hard copy!
Dr Topf,Thanks so much for publishing the pdf of the book. I have a copy already but it will be v useful to have a pdf copy to read when travelling or when bored at a meeting.John
The hardcopy on Amazon is actually better than the PDF. For whatever reason when I rendered the PDF the narrow fonts we used for the link boxes came out garbled. This was not the case when we printed the book for publication. So by all means buy the hard copy and shoot me a nickel ;-)
Thanks! I just ordered it off Amazon; hope you get your nickel!I love the writing style. If you ever get around to writing an immunology or embryology book I'd buy those in a heartbeat!
don't hold your breath for another book ;-)
marvellous book dr joel thanks you very much
thanks dr joel thanks for writing such a wonderful book
Thanks!! This will definitely help with my Renal exam next week!
Thank u doctor, for generously uploading a great book borne out of greater efforts.. my dad is a clinical microbiologist and your work greatly hepled him with a case of hyperkalemia.. so i took the liberty of downloading the book.. thank u..Reminds me of Rabindranath Tagore's poem we learnt at school:"Where the mind is without fear and the head is held highWhere knowledge is freeWhere the world has not been broken up into fragmentsBy narrow domestic wallsWhere words come out from the depth of truthWhere tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfectionWhere the clear stream of reason has not lost its wayInto the dreary desert sand of dead habitWhere the mind is led forward by theeInto ever-widening thought and actionInto that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake."
Inspiring and humbling. Thank you.
I used this book as a third year medical student and intern. I found that my grasp of these topic towered over that of my peers. More than ten years later, I am an academic endocrinologist with a basic science laboratory. I recommend your book to our trainees (and the nephrology trainees) and sincerely hope you update it to include some major and interesting advances in molecular renal physiology. In the nearly 15 years since this book was published renal tubulopathies have been explained on a genetic basis and new drugs (e.g., renin inhibitors) have been developed. Tweaking your tour de force would be a major contribution
What a nice comment. I am in discussions with a publisher about updating the book. We'll see.
