Book Review: Kids Kidney Kidding….

The book is authored by renowned pediatric nephrologist Dr. Pankaj Deshpande.

He has used anecdotes from his clinical practice to spread awareness of different nephrological issues. The USP of the book is, that each anecdote is laced with humour.

Whenever children come for a medical procedure or visit a super-specialist the parents are already tensed because of the case history. The doctor plays a vital role in not just diagnosis and treatment but also in easing the parents’ anxiety and apprehensions. I have personally experienced Dr. Deshpande’s expertise for my son when he was younger.

Every story written in this book has a personal touch and promises to leave the reader smiling even hours after you have put it down.

Special mention to the cartoonist who has recreated the characters including the author himself!
