Really good, so far - By B. Zanzigon September 25, 2007
I give this book 4 stars so far.
My mom has been hospitalized 2 weeks ago with kidney failure and must reduce her potassium. The book arrived today, and I was able to tell her how to take most of the K out of potatoes (86-95% reduction depending on type), which she has been missing mightily.

This has very few actual recipes, but the directions for removing excess minerals are great. It paid for itself when it showed me how you can still enjoy BACON!
